Grave of the Fireflies

Grave of the Fireflies ★★★★

Studio Ghibli Challenge #2

War is a horrible thing. Studio Ghibli's second animated feature is clearly a lovingly crafted film that explores the fate of a brother and sister in the final months of WWII. Grave Of The Fireflies isn't a easy watch and nor is it supposed to be. Beautifully detailed with human interaction which show the tender affection these siblings share just makes it all the more difficult in the final third when the inevitable becomes clear.

So... not exactly a date movie.

Well worth a watch.
