Grave of the Fireflies

Grave of the Fireflies ★★★★★

Takahata’s Grave of the Fireflies is set in Japan in World War 2 and focuses on two kids (A Brother and Sister) as after bombs dropping they are left homeless. It turns out to be an extremely detailed and touching film, it is one of the most emotionally powerful films I've ever seen and definitely has some of the most well fleshed out characters. Saying to much about the plot or anything is not necessary, it is simply an essential film that gets absolutely everything right.
