Drama 2011 128 mins

Overview

Two brothers, living in different cities as a result of their parents’ separation, believe their wishes will be granted if they witness the crossing of trains on a newly opened bullet-train line. Koreeda again illustrates his sensitivity to childhood experience in a gentle, upbeat film, which boasts charmingly naturalistic lead performances from real-life brothers (and stand-up comedy duo) Koki and Oshiro Maeda.
