Grave of the Fireflies

Grave of the Fireflies ★★★★★

Echoes of a child's laughter, playful screams so innocent at the face of despair. Fading, slowly, yes, but you don't need to strain your ears to know it's there. The most painful part is the knowledge that every bit of happiness or sense of relief earned is short lived, like a firefly providing temporary light before wasting away, another addition onto the ever-growing pile of bodies, even the music, however beautiful, refuses to help...

The rumors are true, this film does, in fact, literally kill you.
