"Forget about all those phoney Oscar-bait films — this complex, delicate drama about two young boys living through their parents' split is the real deal, and deeply satisfying." — The Guardian
"Kore-eda’s mastery gets us caught up in the moment: We hope for a miracle, and we get one — but of the cinematic kind, in which we’re carried away as if on that train; transformed, just for a moment, into a child again." — The Seattle Times
