Grave of the Fireflies (1988)

I feel like I’ve gone through war with this film. Let me start off by saying that his movie should not be watched for entertainment. It is sad. Very, very sad. There are glimmers of hope for the two main characters, the brother and sister duo who lose their home to war. There are some beautiful and touching moments and some moments that will just make you mad. The worst is the Aunt who treats her homeless niece and nephew like dirt. The ending is done wonderfully, even though it will crush your heart into little pieces. I’ve been through an emotional battle in this movie, and I hope to have some more time go by before I have to deal with this kind of stuff again. Still, a great movie and an anime that has aged really well.

88/100
