Aroview: Modest 'classic' of Japanese anime that tells the story of two children caught up in the devastating fire-bombing of Kobe in WW2.
Amid the civilian chaos, bereft of home and family, they try to eke out an existence with relatives, then by living in a cave and scavenging for food. Told as an intimate drama of suffering innocence, this has been hailed by some(including Roger Ebert) as a great anti-war statement.

3 stars (Good Enough) Disappointing that contrary to listing I received only one dvd which was not the original version in Japanese but an English language version with (rather inappropriate!) American accents ~Anon
