Hotaru no Haka

12:12 am PHT

A little aimless web surfing and I stumbled onto this movie I’ve seen several years ago in U.P. Grave of the Fireflies (Hotaru no Haka) [Wikipedia] is simply one of the most moving films I have ever seen.

Although its been a long time since I’ve seen this cinematic gem, I can still remember the deep emotional impact it has left on me when I first saw it. Maybe its just a resonance because I’m just feeling a bit depressed lately, but the film’s impact is such that people’s reaction to it is almost universal.

It’s a beautiful piece of film that I heartily recommend.
