火垂るの墓 – Grave of the Fireflies live action movie

http://hotarunohaka.jp/

If you have never seen the original anime “Grave of the Fireflies”, I strongly urge you to buy, borrow or rent it ASAP.  It is one of the best animated films ever made.  The live action remake looks like it’s following the anime storyline and if I were in Japan, I’d be heading to see it this weekend.  It premiers on July 5th.

I think the anime and the film give a pretty accurate portrayal of what life was like at the end of WWII in Japan.
