Director: Hirokazu Koreeda
Starring: Maeda, Ohshiro Maeda, Nene Ohtsuka
Japan, 2011, 2 hours 9 minutes, subtitles
The latest from Koreeda, (who directed Still Walking) is a delightful story of two brothers, separated when their parents split up, who are determined to bring the family back together again. All seven kids involved in the brothers’ adventure to see the two bullet trains pass each other (which will make their wish come true) are charming, while the brothers themselves are unaffectedly natural and note perfect. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face thanks to Koreeda’s skill in showing how kids make sense of the world, this effortlessly evokes a child-like state of mind.
