A poignant film that dives into World War II from the point of view of the Japanese common-folk. This is a poetic response to Grave of the Fireflies in my opinion. I found myself lost in the fresh, unique perspective that the film offers. If you're willing to stomach a film that takes its time to simmer- as opposed to rushing through its material to get through the action- then this film is definitely worth your time. This film is also worth your time if you like WWII films in general. And you might also learn something about late 30's / early 40's Japanese culture during the screening, as I did.

Best movie I've ever seen hands down...although you may not agree, this movie was a great perspective viewpoint through which we view the horrors of warfare, Japanese customs, and teen and adult problems that plague an innocent girl's life.

Such a cute movie the art is so captivating. The story brings so many emotions, happiness, laughter, heartbreak, you fall in love with everyone of the character's and it gives a different view on how everyday life was during a tragic event.
