A touching story about 2 siblings reliving the moments up to their death.
Yes i know you think the subject title is a spoiler but trust me its not, right at the begining you find out the children die. Anyway onto the review.

Grave of Fireflies is an outstanding movie that looks into the pain and struggle people experiance in war.
It is set in Japan durin World War 2 and centres around the 2 siblings \"seita\" (the elder brother) and his four year old sister who are orphaned durin a bombing raid on there home town.
the story follows them as they find distant reletives to live with and eventually leave there and live by themselves in an abandoned bomb shelter.
There is no story to speak of but the film focuses solely the relationship between the two children as they fight for survival in a country with barely enough food and no one to care for them.
Grave of Fireflies is a very touching and sentimental movie and makes you emotionally involved with the characters until there inevitable passing.

The reason i give this movie 4 stars is because, while being very involving and sad, may be very slow and boring for those not interested in a story about war with no actually action. In conclusion some may find it facinating to see how others in another country cope with war in there very different society while others may find it very boring and pointless. Definantly one for the sentimental people.

P.S one the important factors about this movie is that it never resfers to their enemies name. they could\'ve just said \"americans\" or whatever but they make it a point that it doesnt matter wht there nationality is they wouldnt pull any punches or blame them, its simply \"those who pose war are the enemy\".
