The Dramatization of One of the Most Hideous Crimes of the Mankind History, 8 August 2004
11 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

In Nagasaki, Japan, on 09 August 1945, at 11:02 AM, 80.000 dead and thousand of persons wounded or contaminated by radiation were victims of one of the most hideous crimes of the mankind history. This low-budget movie is a dramatization of this deplorable event, based on the report of one of the survivors of the 'day after' of Nagasaki. Tomorrow is the sad anniversary of this massacre and I decided to see this movie for the first time. Unfortunately, the quality of the image of the Brazilian VHS is not good. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): 'Nagasaki 1945... Deixem Viver as Crianças' ('Nagasaki 1945... Let the Children Live')
