Reviews
Mine: I was hesitant to see this as I had been warned this movie would be emotional, but I had no idea just how understated that was. Shows the power that good storytelling can have, the most serious and heart wrenching story I have ever seen animated. A great anti-war message as well.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A young boy and his little sister struggle to survive in Japan during World War II.
