This new musical release from the popular Japanese rock band Quruli, appears on the soundtrack for the soon-to-be distributed film I Wish (originally entitled Kiseki, or Miracle, in Japanese), directed by Hirokazu Koreeda.
The movie, featuring real-life siblings in the lead roles, tells the gripping story of two young brothers who have been separated from one another. Living apart in two different cities the pair dream of one day being reunited.
BTW did you notice the interior of the train featured in this clip? When was the last time you saw a train that had wooden seats with leather upholstery (maybe never)? Actually aesthetically pleasing rail cars with comfy interiors aren't such a rare breed in some parts of Japan.
You can read more about I Wish and the film's director in a review by film critic Mark Schilling on the Japan Times web site.
