Wink Grave of the Fireflies (火垂るの墓)

I just recently watched this movie and was very drawn to it. Anyone else watched this? are there any movies similar to this one? The death of the little girl was definitely the saddest part of the movie for me..

It is one of the most famous wartime anime, and a very moving story too.

Therer are a few others - the most well-known would be Barefoot Gen which was a manga before being made into an anime.

There are also the more obscure titles such as The Cockpit.

More like an anti-war anime. It was one of the most powerful animes I have ever seen, and one of the most powerful anti-war films of any genre. It certainly is one of the all time classics. I would recommend it to anyone, although those who don't like films that are downers would probably not appreciate it.
