Review:

Rated as the best animation film out there by Rolling Stones Magazine, IMDB and USA Today dealing with adult themes that focuses on a young boy Setsuko and his little sister Seita and what they had to endure during the bombing of Japan. It’s a beautiful, touching and tragic with animations that transcends as it really tugs at the heartstrings and paints the horror of war that turns children into orphans and how they are left to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives and find a way to survive in a cruel, uncertain world. The moments between the two siblings and the love they share is just lovely to watch and makes the viewer realize what a precious commodity love is and the length one will go through. Be prepared to cry.
