I Wish (Kiseki)
Cert: TBC Year: 2011 Length: 128 mins
Two brothers divided by their parents' separation long to re-unite their family. When they learn that, if you wish at the exact moment two bullet-trains pass each other your wish will be granted, they form a plan to achieve their mutual wish. Helped by friends - some of whom have wishes of their own - teachers, family and strangers, the two boys embark on their quest. This is a wonderful evocation of childhood innocence, wonder, trust and friendship and all without cloying sentimentality.
Other Hirokazu's films (Afterlife, Nobody Knows and Still Walking) have played to large and enthusiastic audiences in Keswick.
Thanks to Verve Pictures.
Built around performances by two real-life brothers who are as unaffected, spirited and lovable as I can imagine, one of the pleasures of I Wish is simply spending time with them.
