I have yet to be let down by a film from Koreeda and if you have seen some of his works you will know what to expect.
It's an interesting contrast of two families and their ways of raising a child. The dilemma of switching your child or not is rather complex and interesting to watch. The whole story is supported by competent direction and great acting. What more do you want?
