Grave of the Fireflies is a deeply personal and emotionally powerful animated film about the devastating effects of war. Told in a flashback through the memory of a young soldier, the film accounts the desperate attempts he and his little sister make to survive the final months of World War II. This achingly somber anti-war movie is one of Studio Ghibli's most profoundly beautiful and haunting works.

Written and directed by Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata, Grave of the Fireflies is considered a masterpiece and a landmark in animation. Roger Ebert called it "an emotional experience so powerful that it forces a rethinking of animation. It belongs on any list of the greatest war films ever made."
Winner of Animation Jury & Rights of the Child Award (Chicago International Children's Festival 1994), Special Award (Blue Ribbon Awards 1989).

Please note that this film contains some thematic elements. Recommended ages: 12 and up.
