This movie was a masterpiece - I was not prepared for such a tour de force. Will never forget this movie - it was that good.

VERY POWERFUL movie. Touching - not only me, but the lives of thousands of girls who need our help to stay in school and get the education that can change their lives and the economies of their countries.

Very interesting film, if only for the use of various spoken and written languages.

This film covers the life of a family affected by the US bombing of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. It demonstrates how its aftermath affects the lives, both physically and psychologically, of at least a couple of generations later. The story is itself simple and very poignant. Although the justifications given for the bombing are never even suggested, the significance of unintended consequences is made starkly clear.
