Celebrated Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda delighted international audiences once again this year with I Wish (Kiseki, 2011), a sweet and endlessly touching tale of two young brothers separated by their parent’s amicable divorce. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray rerelease of Kore-eda’s latest endeavour on Monday 27 May, we’ve kindly been provided with THREE Blu-ray copies of the enchanting I Wish to give away to our readers, courtesy of our good friends at UK distributor Arrow Films.

Stoic, grounded 12-year-old Koichi (Koki Maeda) lives dutifully in coastal Kagoshima with his mother and grandparents, while 10-year-old tearaway Ryu (Ohshirô Maeda) is living it up with his deadbeat musician dad in urban Kyushu. Meanwhile, the Kyushu train line connecting these two cities is nearing completion and Koichi hears a rumour that when the first two trains pass each other a miracle will occur and wishes will be granted to all those who witness it. With this in mind the brothers set out with a plan to reunite their family.
