Two sets of parents discover that their six-year-old children were switched at birth, and don’t quite know what to do about it. Could be the setup for a hilarious comedy, instead it’s the setup for a contemplative and deeply moving film about parental love and what parents ought to expect of their children and of themselves.

Well, this movie is really, really good. On some days I might call this “required viewing,” but today I am going to say Worth Watching Plus, where the plus basically means that the next movie you watch should probably be this movie.

With meals starting at 30,000 Yen ($382), Jiro and his staff will make you the best sushi anyone can make. A documentary about dedication. The sushi is great, but is making great sushi a task worth dedicating your life and your sons’ lives to? What’s the alternative? The style of the documentary matches the sushi. Simple but carefully constructed. Certainly Worth Watching at least part of this movie to see what is about and how it is made, although probably 20 minutes or so is sufficient. You’re busy, you’ve got other things to do!
