"Hibakusha" is a must see
23 December 2014 | by mikechang-193-848888See all my reviews

Kudos to Choz and Steve for making this film because the story needed to be told in some form! I was fortunate to see this film come into its development stage to what it is now. The story of the Hiroshima bombing has been told several different ways, but none like this. In a graphic novel/film noir type setting, the guys at Studio APA took a completely serious subject matter and transformed it into a work of art.If you have no prior or existing knowledge of the history that took place in Japan during the end of World War 2, Hibakusha does a great job retelling the story that doesn't make it seem like a boring history lesson. Kaz Suyeishi (the lady that the film is based on) goes through an intense journey to find the strength to move past the horrible events that have taken place after the surprise bombing. After this film is over, you will have a deeper opinion of the issues that surround the discussion of right/wrong.
