FILM: I Wish (Kiseki) Japanese Film.
I couldn’t explain it myself but this movie is simply heart felt, nostalgic, and it brings back some memories of my childhood. I didn’t came from Japan but the movie setting feels like home for me. Innocence is really blissful. We may though that life as a kid is easy but the world is still so big and hard for them to understand. I wish that there are always good people around them to teach and answer their questions (we adult sometimes don’t know how to answer). I just love this film.
A 2011 Japanese film written and directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda with real life brothers Koki Maeda and Oshiro Maeda.
I don’t think that this film will be shown here in middle east. You know where to find it.
Twelve-year-old Koichi lives with his mother and retired grandparents in Kagoshima, in the southern region of Kyushu, Japan. His younger brother Ryunosuke lives with their father in Hakata, northern Kyushu. The brothers have been separated by their parents’ divorce and Koichi’s only wish is for his family to be reunited. When he learns that a new bullet train line will soon open, linking the two towns, he starts to believe that a miracle will take place the moment these new trains first pass each other at top speed. With help from the adults around him, Koichi sets out on a journey with a group of friends, each hoping to witness a miracle that will improve their difficult lives.
