Storyline

What is it that saved Tokyo from a nuclear disaster? A pool of foreign journalists, including reporter Pio d'Emilia (Sky), is allowed to enter the Fukushima-Daiichi power plant: they have waited two years to uncover the truth about the 2011 accident hidden behind those walls. The ex-premier Naoto Kan takes us back to the days of the accident and reveals the events as they really happened. Manga animations represent Japan's history, while digital reconstruction allows for the darker side of this story, which is so complex from a social and scientific point of view, to emerge. There are no mere suspects anymore: many defendants are to be held accountable for the accident. Written by Christine Reinhold

A warning to humanity
8 May 2015 | by a-antoliniSee all my reviews

An important document, an extraordinary testimony of a disaster that shocked the whole world. The Matteo Gagliardi's documentary hits, it hits hard consciences, affects souls of who confront himself with this story. A story that you knew only what the media have filtered many times, at the expense of a uncomfortable truth, a truth that gradually, with the passing of the beautiful images of the film, it becomes increasingly clear, always harder to swallow. And the awareness of powerlessness in the face of the common man economic interests and power, is a bitter pill, so bitter by upset, to cause concern for themselves and, above all, for the future our children and the planet itself. But Gagliardi's story also has the the merit for to dignify the documentary as a tool story thanks to an extraordinary direction and an extraordinary editing!
