Hotaru no haka (1988)
This movie is the most beautiful movie I had ever seen. No other movie touched me like this one did. For all you people who think all animation is kids stuff, you're wrong. Grave of the Fireflies is NOT for kids. I don't even know why the cover states it is rated 3 and up. It should be rated pg13 because it is much to sad for little kids. I watched Grave of the Fireflies about a year ago. My brother saw it on the internet, and after I did. I thought it was going to be violent, but that wasn't the case. It was beautiful and tear jerking. Before I saw Grave of the Fireflies I always thought A Walk to Remember or Titanic was the saddest movie. These movies are NOTHING compared to Grave of the Fireflies. Setsuko was so real. I have never seen any four year old in movies act like a real four year old like her. It brought me to tears to see her die. But then again, Grave of the Fireflies is also sort of happy. At the beginning and the end you see that both Seita and Setsuko are together again, and there is no more suffering. Grave of the Fireflies shows what a war could do to people. Do we really think about what happens to the children and their families during a war?
Thank you Isao Takahata for producing such a masterpiece! Grave of the Fireflies is a must see.
