No other movie has given me so clear a picture of the hardship in Japan. I know the nation brought it upon itself with aggressive expansionism leading to massive warfare. Thank God the Allies didn't make the mistake of seeking retribution or 'Grave of the Fireflies' would have been more harrowing.
Better to light a candle ... than to curse the darkness.
