"Why do fireflies have to die so young?"
I watched Grave of the Fireflies last night and man, was that one sad flick. I've heard for many years that it was a great movie but never had the chance to experience the film first hand. Finally had that chance during dinner last night.
War is never a pleasurable experience, but when innocence is caught in the middle of all the mayhem, it just shows how much more ruthless and senseless it can be. I feel like a I have a loss for words to describe this masterpiece, it was that moving.
