Review: I Wish

A wonderful film focusing on children's dreams, although a little too long.

I really loved this film! Having seen it at the New Zealand Film Festival, I want to see it again in the regular cinemas as I don't think I caught everything first time. The children in this film are very endearing, and the lead-up to when the main character's dream is fulfilled is great. There's also an interesting subplot of the reality of living in Kagoshima, with a smouldering volcano right on one's doorstep. Granted the film was relatively slow, and quite long, but I really got to love the main characters and wanted to see them do well. I didn't feel it dragging too much at all. There's also some really laugh-out-loud funny moments.
