As the Empire of the Sun crumbles upon itself and a rain of firebombs falls upon Japan, the final death march of a nation is echoed in millions of smaller tragedies. This is the story of Seita and his younger sister Setsuko, two children born at the wrong time, in the wrong place, and now cast adrift in a world that lacks not the care to shelter them, but simply the resources. Forced to fend for themselves in the aftermath of fires that swept entire cities from the face of the earth, their doomed struggle is both a tribute to the human spirit and the stuff of nightmares. Beautiful, yet at times brutal and horrifying. Based on the retellings of survivor Nosaka Akiyuki and directed by Iaso Takahata (co-founder, with Hayao Miyazaki, of Japan's legendary Studio Ghibli,) "Grave Of The Fireflies" has been universally hailed as an artistic and emotional tour de force. Now digitally remastered and restored, it is one of the rare films that truly deserves to be called a masterpiece.

Saddist Film Ever Made

This is a beautifully moving film about a very real period in the history of a nation. The relationship between the siblings as they struggle through horrific adversity is genuinely sweet, tragic and poignant, without being the slightest bit pretentious or syrupy. The story centers around two soon-to-be-orphaned children, a boy and his much younger sister, as they struggle to survive after a fire bombing destroys their home and family in WWII Japan. Spoiler alert: In the end, they fail; and the storyline must continue, as narrated by the spirit of the longer-surviving lad. Beautifully animated and truly haunting, this film is said to have created an important social awakening in its homeland -- and throughout the world -- at its release. If you are tired of seeing war "glorified" and would rather see the true devastation this kind of destruction can bring on any population, then this animated film will translate it to a very personal and very believable level. In fact, it is said to be semi autobiographical, based on a story by a man who watched his own sister die of starvation during the war. If you are having trouble grieving a personal loss, in need of a "good cry", and none of the many remakes of "A Dog of Flanders" was sad enough to move you to tears, then this is the film for you. But if you have children, make sure they are nowhere near the house when you start this film playing. Its effects (and affects) will doubtless haunt your own dreams for years... as it has mine.

This was an emotional and tragic story told, with sweetness, sadness, harsh reality, and definitely tugs at the heartstrings. This is a true piece of art from Studio Ghibli. I just want to point out to this is not a movie for little kids. This is not like the Disney Studio Ghibli, and the more kid appropriate movies like Ponyo, The Secret World of Arrietty, Spirited Away, and such. So, if that if your intended audience, this is not for you, at least not in my opinion.
