In person, Japanese director Kore-eda Hirokazu is gentle and thoughtful, with a frequent warm, shy smile—of the directors we've met, he perhaps comes closest to being the true embodiment of his films. But his humility is all the more remarkable for the body of work it covers: since establishing himself instantly as a filmmaker of rare sensitivity with 1995's "Maborosi" and breaking through internationally with his vision of a bureaucratic yet sympathetic Purgatory in "After Life," he has brought films to Cannes four times, and earlier this year won the Jury Prize and the Ecumenical Jury Prize for the extraordinarily affecting "Like Father Like Son."

While the Coen Brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis" and the epic romance "Blue Is The Warmest Color" have dominated the post-Cannes conversation, one film that deserves just as much love is Hirokazu Kore-eda's "Like Father, Like Son." The film landed to wins on the Croisette, taking home the Jury Prize along with a Special Mention from the Ecumenical Jury, and jury president Steven Spielberg clearly was taken with the film, with his longtime home DreamWorks snapping up the remake rights. But before we see what the American take on this story is, a brand new U.K. trailer is here to remind you that the original is the real deal.
