Grave of the Fireflies

Grave of the Fireflies ★★★★★

“Why do the fireflies have to die so soon?”

Visually breathtaking, emotionally tender and fragile, Grave of the Fireflies is one of the more beautiful and absolutely gut-wrenching experiences I’ve had watching a film. Michio Mamiya’s score is so evocative and richly rendered, I don’t see it leaving my consciousness for quite some time. This might be the best animated film of all-time.
