Reality is cruel. War is unfortunately part of human reality. The movie is a technical masterpiece. But don't forget you have, even at this very moment, wars around the globe and stories like this every day. And I am willing to take this stance - if you support leaderships that support war, you support acts of terror. That is either apathetic or not well thought-out (stupid). But hey, we wouldn't be able to cry over movies like this so something good comes out of the suffering. Right?

Maybe the best and most realistic movie about WWII. Great animation, powerful story and stunning story telling via visuals.Its a classic.

In my memory this was a grueling experience, but actually the film also has many lighter moments about trying to keep a sense of normalcy and humanity under dire circumstances. However it can be hard to empathize with many of the decisions the main character makes.

We know brother and sister die in the opening scenes. Fireflies are the perfect metaphor for their lives - they shine, play, be together and die early. Most of it is almost an Ozu film about generations and families interests clashing -- they first live with an angry aunt, then move to shelter. Scene where Setsuko digs a grave and tells Seita she knows mom died is devastating. Candy can as ultimate sign of hope. Casualties of war. Poignant film about loss of innocence and abbreviated childhood.

Very sad film. It's worth seeing, but be aware that it will be a depressing watch. Very well made film. Reminded me of this quote by Tolkien: "The world is full enough of hurts and mischances without wars to multiply them."
