Like Father Like Son

This is not an easy movie to watch, mainly because it deals with suddenly finding out that your child is not your biological child and the ramifications of it.

The Nonomiya family is living their life like normal when one day Midori (Ono Machiko) gets a phone call from the hospital where their son Keita (Ninomiya Keita) was born. They are requested to be met. Midori and Ryota (Fukuyama Masaharu) go and are told that their child was swapped at birth. The Nonomiya family and the Saiki family meet and together they must decide whether or not to swap their children.

This movie really tugs on the heart strings. I can not even imagine what the people in this situation would really do. The actors were perfect and really brought the mixed emotions to the audience. This is a really good movie to watch if you want a more emotional movie.

If you loved the Galileo series then this is right up your alley. This is the movie continuation after season 2 of Galileo. Just think of it as a 2-hour long episode of the series.

We follow Yukawa Manabu (Fukuyama Masaharu) who has been invited to give a talk about  Submarine Mineral Resources Development in Harigaura. However, on his second day there another lodger was found dead on the shore. Tsukazaka Kyohei (Yamazaki Hikaru), a young boy visiting his family, mentions how the death of the man makes no sense. Kishitani Misa (Yoshitaka Yuriko) Yukawa takes a liking to the young boy and together they try and figure out what happened. That is until Yukawa figures it out and makes sure that Kyohei never finds out.

I love the series and this is a really good continuation of it. I might have a mild crush on Fukuyama and his fabulous acting. This is definitely a movie to watch if you like crime fighting mysteries or the Galileo series.
