029 - I Wish (2011)

I Wish is a Japanese film directed by the widely acclaimed director, Hirokazu Koreeda. The film centres around two young brothers who are separated from each other due to their parent’s divorce. The brothers hears of a rumour that the power of two high-speed trains passing each other can make wishes come true, so they venture out to that focal point in order to make their dream of uniting the family come true. This is a tender, delicate film from one of the greatest directing talents out there at the moment.

028 - Pather Panchali (1955)

Pather Panchali, directed by Satyajit Ray, is a 1955 Bengali drama film based on the Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay’s novel of the same name. The film is followed by two sequels, Aparajito and then Apur Sansar, in the highly acclaimed ‘Apu Trilogy’, which is often considered to be one of the greatest film trilogies of all time. The first part, Pather Panchali, tells the delicate touching story of Apu’s early impoverish childhood life, and the difficult circumstances his family faces as he grows up. They don’t make many films like this anymore.
