Grave of the Fireflies

Adult themes

Directed by Isao Takahata

A tale of the true tragedy of war and innocence lost.

In the aftermath of a World War II bombing, two orphaned children struggle to survive in the Japanese countryside. To Seita and his four-year-old sister, the helplessness and indifference of their countrymen is even more painful than the enemy raids. Through desperation, hunger and grief, these children's lives are as heartbreakingly fragile as their spirit and love is inspiring.

This edition has been digitally remastered and restored.
