Kiseki – I Wish
Sweet story of two brothers, one living with his wannabe rock-star father, the other with his mother and grandparents following parental separation.
They’re so desperate for the family to be reunited that they move heaven and earth to be at the point where two new bullet trains pass each other, as they’ve heard miracles can happen if you wish on the passing of the trains.
Whilst the parents are being childish and irresponsible, the brothers and their friends get on with managing their own time, money and plans to try to make their dreams come true.
Loved this view of childhood by director Hirokazu Koreeda.
