Editorial Reviews

A spellbinding story, magnificent performances - this film has it all. Hiroshima: Out of the Ashes recounts the unimaginable event of August 6, 1945 when the entire city of Hiroshima was annihilated by a nuclear bomb. Seen through the eyes of a disparate group of survivors, the aftermath of the bombing is revealed in all its horrific ferocity: whole city blocks have been vaporized and anguished citizens search for loved ones in the mangled debris. Interweaving tales of courage and redemption, Hiroshima: Out of the Ashes is a devastating portrait of destruction and an inspiring story of the resilience of the human spirit.

This is a film about the bombing of Hiroshima as seen by American, German and Japanese eyes. It is a single film with several stories. One story is of an American aircrew shot down and interned in Hiroshima and how they were influenced by the dropping of the bomb. Another is of a German catholic priest and how the exploxion has changed him. Then there are several Japanese views; one a school boy who is trying to carry out his classmates final request, a Japanese physician dealing with the medical aftermath of the explosion such as radiation poisoning a malady only then seen once in a while from overexposure to x-rays, and the trials of an expatriate Japanese-AMerican woman who is living with her in-laws and expecting a child. A Japanese-American woman is played by Tamlyn Tomita it is ironic that she meets hostility and suspicion because of being Japanese American. In the US she would have been interned. In Japan she is allowed some freedom although she is under surveillance by the secret police. There are Japanese charecters who wish to continue the fight against the allied powers regardless of cost to themselves. There are characters who are tired of the war and then finally there are charecters that are just tired and need to rest from the privations that the war has brought to them. This is a story of the aftermath of the use of the atomic bomb and the effect it had on people of that moment. Ultimately, at the conclusion, there are no enemies, just survivors. It is a movie that should be seen to gain some understanding of what took place that day and how, over 55 years later, the world is still trying to cope with what happened there. It is also a reminder that not just Japanese were in Hiroshima the day the bomb was dropped.

I haven't seen this movie for more years than I'll ever admit to, but it always stuck in my head. When I ran across it, I knew I had to own it. I would NOT recommend this movie to any child under 16 because of the nature of the information in it. I know, kids are more mature these days, but seeing flesh burned off of a human being isn't something I'd allow any child to see. It was hard enough for ME to see it! Is it totally accurate with it's information? I can't say for sure but it does show what the bomb did to the characters it focused on and makes me wonder.....is war really worth it? How about a nice game of chess instead.

I have looked for this DVD for along time. The total over whelming destruction of the city and in the middle of all this there were people helping other people. The lesson this bomb teaches should not be forgotten.
