This movie always makes me cry… and remind me of the terror of war.

    I knew how sad the movie was, but it didn’t stop me from crying even halfway through the movie and I was a mess by the end.

    Still it was very well-written and sad how people seem to forget children suffer the most in wars.

    Like this film, the story of war should be told to many people including children, I think.
    When I was in elementary school, teachers showed us many war films (cartoon) at the school. Some of them were pretty scary, and the visual effect stuck on our brains and we learnt that war is nothing but sadness and pain. Otherwise we (kids in Japan) wouldn’t know what the war is at all.
    Still, It somehow sounds like something that would happen in totally different world or only in the movie, but it did (and still does) happen around us and our grandparents did experience them.
