From the creators of SPIRITED AWAY and PONYO and available for the first time on Blu-ray in stunning high-definition comes the classic animation feature GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES.
Set in Japan during World War II, the film focuses on Seita and his little sister Setsuko. After their mother is killed in an air raid and with their father serving in the navy, they are forced to fight for survival in the devastated Japanese countryside. Food and shelter are scarce, and even their own relatives are too concerned with their own survival. All they have is each other and their belief that life must carry on.Takahata and his team, including character animator Yoshifumi Kondo (who has subsequently worked on otheracclaimed Ghibli films from director Hayao Miyazaki) have created a visually stunning and emotionally powerfulfilm that meditates on the devastating consequences of war and has rightly earned a reputation as an anime classic.

This movie is a gem. It made me cry and yet made me also so hopeful about life and our human existence. Despite the fact that this movie deals with the topic of war and the fight for survival lot two siblings... it is mainly about the joyful and happy little moments spent together. A run on the beach, a little fruit drop ... It is a wonderful movie that shows how precious those little moments in life are, and that everything else is meaningless... This movie was one little precious moment for me and I wouldn't want to miss it for the world
