"Hankyu Densha" follows the lives of various people who commute on Hankyu Railway's Imazu Line - connecting the cities of Nishinomiya and Takarazuka in Hyogo prefecture. One of the commuters is Shoko (Nakatani Miki), an office worker in her 30s who lost her boyfriend to a younger colleague. There's also a college student (Toda Erika) who is so easily persuaded by her no good boyfriend. Other commuters include a grandmother & granddaughter, a house wife, a female high school student, and a female otaku college student.
Although the train ride takes only 15 minutes between two stations, the lives of these commuters are changed as they interact with each other...
Cast & Credits
I feel blessed watching this film but never imagine that only saying a few words to others can mean so much and enough to change one's life. Seriously though, passing by a stranger and sharing some problems can actually happen in a real life. These characters begin to make a cross path to each other, helping others through an experience of a struggling life as well.
This film will always remind us that the world is not bad or a miserable place you could ever be no matter how you look at it, because somewhere in a corner..We just don't realize that such a thing can be called a "Miracle" especially to those people around you. Who knows, ne? :)
The reason why I watch this is because of Toda and Mana-chan, but don't get me wrong! You might find this boring and it depends how you view it.
Well, Overall, not an outstanding one. It's good I must say.
