I Wish (2011)

Directed by: Hirokazu Koreeda
Country: Japan

Plot: The film follows two brothers: one lives in Kagoshima and the other in Fukuoka. Their parents separated 6 months ago. After having heard about a urban legend they decide to collect money and reunite for an unforgettable trip to have their wishes granted.
Quick comment: Another delightful movie from one of the best contemporary japanese directors. As in “nobody knows” (2004) and “still walking” (2008) – both highly recommended, Koreeda’s subject is based on family relationships. “I wish” takes advantage of childhood innocence mixed up with a wonderful sense of adventure. Honest and genuine.
