ordinary life of wartime at Hiroshima and Kure in Japan. it is so peaceful.
16 December 2016 | by ibist40See all my reviews

At Hiroshima and Kure city in Japan during World WarII time. A ordinary family live in peace and straggle for everyday life. A poor menu, a little portion of rice. Suzu(a heroin of this film) miss ordinary life. But she and her family being mercy to each other. Even if the atomic bomb is dropped and Hiroshima is destroyed, She, her family, city person and all Japanese live alive Ordinary. atomic bombing scene is just a one cut, but, many Japanese think war is evil for every country and ever people. it is a new style of Peace Declaration Movie. may be the best animation movie in japan 2016. I want to hope many people enjoy this movie all over the world.
