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 and realistic about the horrors of war. There are also adult themes in this movie as well, therefore, not recommended for children.

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.
