This is a film about people and their childhood dreams and making a decision on living them out later in life. What's more important, it is a true story.

It's not a cinematic masterpiece. It gets down to traumas and triumphs of people's lives. It does delve into some detail into Japanese lives, drive and emotions. I find it a compelling story.

It does have elements of pathos. It does have an obvious appeal to people who enjoy trains and railways.

I had seen this as a Japan film festival, but buying an English subtitled version so far eludes me. This is a deal breaker for Western Audiences.
