Emotionally effective yet unstructured
1 March 2006 | by (San Francisco, CA USA) – See all my reviews

This film is essentially a series of vignettes profiling survivors of the Hiroshima bomb and, in a few cases, their offspring, as well as the city itself. While the stories and the people themselves touch your heart, the movie lacks the direction to make it great. The filmmaker was present for a Q&A here in San Francisco tonight, during which he explained the reasoning behind his opening shots. It was a great idea that was forgotten by the end. There was one recurring image (twice) that was used to give it some structure but it seemed forced in its current form. Maybe it'll be better when the feature is done (the director is working on a longer, more comprehensive version for HBO that will include Nagasaki).
