Sometimes it really sucks being a fan of Asian cinema in the West, you hear about fantastic films and you want to see them right now but you have to wait for 1) subtitling and b) for a Western release. But sometimes it’s worth the wait and ‘I Wish’ is certainly worth the wait, don’t let this beautiful film from Hirokazu Koreeda pass you by.

“Filmmaker Hirokazu Koreeda (Still Walking) delivers another fascinating exploration of family relationships with this emotionally stirring tale of childhood and innocence. Two young brothers find themselves divided by their parent’s separation and forced to live at opposite ends of Kyushu in Japan. Keen to reunite and repair the rift between their parents, the boys cook up a mystical solution whereby they will both make a wish at the split-second when two speeding Bullet Trains pass each, believing this powerful force will make a miracle happen and magically bring their family back together.” — Tyneside Cinema
