Top Customer Reviews
Let me tell you- this movie will absolutely shock you on several occasions, because it shows footage of the famous bombing incident in World War II, and you will get to know a few select Japanese people who were a part of the disaster and lived through it, with all the amazingly accurate and heartbreaking details revealing to us exactly what they had to go through.
It's almost hard to believe real people had to go through these horrible events and deal with diseases, their skin falling apart, and other major problems as a result of one devastating bomb.
It's a film worth seeing from a Japanese perspective, because for years we've all been seeing the American point of view of what happened that horrible day. Now it's the Japanese telling their stories. You'll get to know each one of them and listen to their incredible stories. What they had to go through was just... unbelievable.
Worth watching, but don't be surprised if the shocking stories and video footage becomes too much for a weak stomach.
