Hankyu Railways - A 15-Minute Miracle


Bframe recommended this movie to me. I am ashamed to say I did not know that a movie starring Nakatani Miki and Toda Erika existed so I quickly bumped it to the top of my movies to watch list. Its an ensemble movie about various people using the Hankyu railway and how they interact with each other and make a significant impact on each other's lives.


WHAT I LIKED

- Feel good movie with some comedic bits.

- Seeing which character will end up helping which character.

- Nakatani Miki and Toda Erika! What other reasons to do you need to watch it? How about Arimura Kasumi and Tanimura Mitsuki?

- Not a tear jerker.


WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE

- Its a feel good movie that plays it very safe and it tries to create a lot of touching moments and some feel too manufactured but Nakatani Miki's is the best.

Guess who else is in this movie? I wish Ohashi Nozomi (Shiroi Haru) didn't quit. Now everytime there's a little girl role, its Ashida Mana.

SUMMARY

- Would have been a great movie if Koreeda had directed it. It would have felt more real than safe feel good. Enjoyable movie which does aspire to be more than what it is; a feel good drama for the masses.
