Intelligent, often poignant, and valuable for offering an oral history by those who witnessed one of the most traumatic events of the 20th century.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

To say that watching this footage is harrowing would be an understatement -- and to call watching it "painful" would be a serious insult to the survivors.

[A] simple, apolitical reminder -- an act of passionate but clearheaded pleading -- that we must never forget the horrors of Japan in the summer of 1945.

No warning can really prepare you for these images of ashen corpses, maimed survivors and apocalyptic destruction, but in an age of renewed nuclear tension, there can be no question as to their relevance.

Film's sobering impact lets the images and witnesses' words speak for themselves.
