1: The Movie


Grave of the Fireflies is the most gut-wrenching and moving animated film every made, period. It is impossible for any one with a heart to watch this film and not be moved. Strong words, but this film can back them up.

The story takes place in WWII Japan and follows two small children as they struggle to survive. There are moments of humor and joy that are equally matched by scenes of bittersweet hurt. This movie, by the great Studio Ghibili, based on the semi-autobiographical novel by Akiyuki Nosaka, transcends it's medium and tells a poignant story perfectly. It is an absolute must see.
