Set in WW2 Hiroshima we all knew what was coming with this film. Yet, the characters and the animation were so lovely and enjoyable at times you almost forget. The growing tragedy the film turns into is only heightened by the clock ticking on the inevitable. We get to watch Suzu and her family grow and evolve over the years and the toll the war takes on all of them. One of the better films I saw this year.

Beautiful and emotional animation...but very violent, graphic, realistic about the horrors of war. Watched it twice now. The first time I couldn't watch the whole thing, it was too horrifying! The second time I watched it through, and I watched it with my mother who is from Japan, who actually went through the war, she was only 6 years old during that time so maybe 20 years younger than the protagonist in the film. BUT she remembers everything...and says all of the horrors are true. She was not in Hiroshima, she was in Tokyo at the time and went through the horrors of the Tokyo bombing.

Beautiful and emotional film that follows a young recently married woman as she copes with life in a new family and during WWII. The animation is nicely done. There are a lot of sad moments but also many happy and sweet moments so be prepared. It isn't as intense as Grave of the Fireflies but serious nonetheless. The soundtrack is also beautiful.

A very beautiful movie that also has tragic themes woven through. The animation is dream-like.
