In his latest film, the marvelous Japanese director Hirokazu Koreeda shows a strong affinity for the humors and longings of childhood. Sixth-grader Koichi and his younger brother Ryunosuke have been split apart by their parents’ divorce – Koichi lives with his mother and grandparents in a southern region near an active volcano, while Ryunosuke lives with his lay-about rock-musician father up north. It is the boys’ belief that a bullet train linking these two regions will become the agency of their salvation. With help from the adults around him, Koichi sets out on a journey with a group of friends, each hoping to witness a miracle that will improve their difficult lives. Made with astonishing insight into childhood, I Wish is as troubling as it is charming, with moments of giddy humor tempered by heartbreak.
