Rated 8.2 / 10 Stars at IMDB
Due to the graphic and truly emotional depiction of the negative consequences of war on society and the individuals therein, some critics have viewed “Grave of the Fireflies” as an anti-war film. The film does provide an insight into Japanese culture by focusing its attention almost entirely on the personal tragedies that wars give rise to, rather than seeking to glamorize it as a heroic struggle between competing ideologies. Conversely, some critics have cited the film’s narrow focus on suffering by solely Japanese characters as a classic example of Japanese myopia toward the root causes of World War II and the failure of Japan to address its own grave responsibilities for aggressive acts of war and war crimes dating to the 1930s.
