    Wishing upon a bullet train

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 09/03/2012

    ยป Hirokazu Kore-eda's I Wish is a film about small happiness hidden under earth-shaking woes. An unexpected hand clasp on the shoulder, a swimming trunk in a wash basin, the sound of a clinking bell, the volcanic ash that falls like confetti _ the random joy of life slowly works its way into the heart of a young boy at the centre of this family drama, on limited release starting yesterday. Sweet but thankfully not saccharine, observant without being obsessive, I Wish has the delicate lightness and calm lucidity of all Kore-eda's films. And although this one won't move you to ponder the painful disintegration of family values the way the director's near-masterpiece Nobody Knows did in 2004, the uncoiling of revelations here is as gentle as it is refreshing.
