Kore’eda Hirokazu has been hailed as Japan’s greatest living director. His 2004 Nobody Knows is one of the great films about childhood, so it exciting to see him return to the world of children with this deeply pleasurable tale of two brothers trying to reunite their family. To do this, they must journey to the point where two bullet trains pass, and in the mythology of kids, generate enough energy to create miracles. This is a highly acclaimed and heartwarming tale of family bonds.
