I watched this film without knowing what it was going to be about. It's thrown together with an American B movie 'This Is Not A Test' in a collection that I picked up at the local library for killing some time. The two films both deal with the horrors of the atomic weapon era. The story has been pointed out by others here so I won't summarize that, but it was quite an interesting contrast to see the two back to back. Atomic War Bride is made with many implicit and explicit allusions to the European intellectual and literary traditions, while addressing the new issue of atomic weapons of mass destruction, that was going to soon become one of the earliest strong signs of globalization. I don't mean to get into 'This Is Not A Test' here, but the point is that those traces of intellectual thought make a serious difference between these two films. While the American one is not much more than a basic and crude take on the questions of authority and irony, this one covers a wide range of issues about the relationship between the individual and the society, the relationship between the individual and the state, questions of violence and love, absurdity, freedom and group psychology, and more. All in all, I guess, this is a nice little film that makes you think again and again, without necessarily claiming to be an intellectual film. It is, after all, an absurd comedy about war and the question of optimism against the harsh realities of the human nature. I found it well worth the watch.
