5.0 out of 5 stars Terribly sad, but undoubtedly a masterpiece, 13 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Grave of the Fireflies [DVD] (DVD)
It's now. An earthquake and devastation; thousands lost, children lost, parents lost, a feeling of the end of the world.

Perhaps this is not a review at all, just a call to prayer and help. Do think of this film, think of it when the appeals go out, think of it when you pray for them all.

The film tells the story of two lovely children caught in a bombing raid in the second world war, and while it is extremely tragic, extremely sad, and...

I could not watch it all at once, and when I finally did get to the closing reels I was distraught. And this is not in vain. These great works of art, and this IS such a great work as I never really seen before, is there to ignite those warm embers of compassion into fire. What can I say apart from this.

A tremendous film. A call to act, and to be. As we should all be.
