Grave of the Fireflies

Grave of the Fireflies ★★

火垂るの墓
"Earlier on today I joked about being cold-hearted, but it's obviously true. I'm not a fan of anime, but I thought that this widely acclaimed and admired anti-war story would leave me feeling as sad as others, but it didn't. I could see a strong anti-adults message, but the anti-war bit escaped me - we all know that war is bad and the film added nothing to that truth. (I watched a subtitled version, rather than the dubbed version)."
