One of the greatest anti war movies of all time. Needless to say, a relentless tear jerker.

Stunning movie. There is no villain, there is no hatred for either side of the war, there is only a brother and sister trying to survive through harsh times. This will have you emotionally invested and you will cry. It's not your average animated flick where there's a happy ending: Grave of the Fireflies takes its subject matter very seriously and properly conveys the human condition, and just how hard things are in war.

Puntaje Original: 8.0

Desgarradora, profunda. Hotaru no haka nos muestra uno de los lados ms crueles de la guerra con una obra maestra que sin duda conmover hasta a los corazones mas duros.

Possibly the most powerful and effective war movie ever made. The fact that it's animated allows you not to be distracted by physical appearance of actual actors and only serves to heighten the emotional impact of the story as it progresses.

This is the type of movie that everyone should see at least once.

Depressing but compelling story.

If this movie doesn't make you cry, then no movie ever will. Gripping anti-war piece that depicts in the saddest way possible how it effects those in the midst of war.

grave of the fireflies is a testament of what a good animation can do to your emotions. It's emotionally draining and as the fate of characters is revealed to you in first 5 minutes of the movie therefore the dread multiplies tenfold with each and every scene. Now just to paint a picture imagine first ten minutes of up(the pixar movie) and multiply it by 100.That is the intensity here. It pushes boundary on what animation is perceived to be...
A Required viewing for any movie lover.

Very depressing. A rare film (an animated one, mind you) that seeps out such overwhelming sadness--shadows of black over a canvass of beautiful but war-torn childhood innocence. Getting teary-eyed on this won't be surprising.

This story has so much heart. It's a sad story but a very good one. One of the many casualties of war and how the innocent are affected by it.

What is a true theme of this movie?

bushido(The Soul of Japan) can often explain a peculiar phenomenon to Japan.
That's philosophy. And it's a foundation of the sense of values Japanese has.

Why was "A Dog of Flanders" popular with Japan?
What was a theme of Evangerion?
What is a mistake of SEITA?

This movie tells the people of Japan.
Do not forget the Bushido!

A nightmare so captivating that you don't want to wake up. Also, when it ends you realize that at least this was a nightmare, but reality is as cruel but not as captivating.

It is not just a film to casually watch on a Sunday afternoon, packs a real emotion punch and leaves deep questions for the viewer
