    "To be..."
    "Or not to be."
    And that really is the question.
    And the answer is,
    to unashamedly,
    unrepentantly, aggressively,
    joyously, bloody well... be!

    Like Father, Like Son

    ★★★★

    Without any expectations that were too high, I thoroughly enjoyed the film. The acting, from the parents to the children, was superb. And understanding how Japanese culture can be, This film is surprisingly soft in its approach, mostly focusing on the contrast between the two fathers.

    There is real emotion and charm to be found in this movie, and the way director Koreeda guides the family, helps a lot. Like Father, Like Son is a wonderful film, and one that many can relate to.

    "Power to the people! Stick it to the man!"

    This story is the best remedy for low spirits, i'm so in love with this family and i could say it's the most UNIQUE film of the year : yes, This is the best film I have seen so far this year, one that challenges us to ponder what we see unfold, urges us to be more than just another fish in the school, but to laugh, be crazy, think for ourselves and pitch in an effort to find the scattered pieces of the puzzle we call the human condition. Fantastic is the word indeed.

    sometimes, crying is the only way our eyes can speak when our mouth cant explain how broken our heart really is.
    I would have, could have,should have, done alot of things but did not,it hurts to see you gone..
    I'm watching what you've lastly watched, it's just my way of looking for you everywhere, hoping that you were watching over me and sending me signs. I am definitely not at ease with your passing.
    I am trying to let go of the guilt from the promises I made and subsequently broke in the wake of your death.
    I'm gonna see you again..
