I LOVE THIS MOVIE.
It's really sad, but I didn't cry o.o
I have a Meiji fruit drops can that I use as a canteen. It was so sad when she was trying to eat the marbles!

To see something so heart-wrenching was a new experience for me. Such despair... The saddest part is that in that time period that kind of thing really happened.

Gut-wrenching.. as a former soldier, I have to reconsider the wisdom of war and fighting... nobody wants civilian casualties, but at that time smart weapons hadn't been invented. My Dad was a Bomber Pilot. I remember him telling me he still had nightmares about what an incendiary load would do to those on the receiving end.

The one 'truth' I take away from it is, at that time, they would have done the same to us, if they'd had the capability to do so.
