In This Corner of the World
Drama • PG-13 • 2016 • 2 hr 10 min
A beautiful exploration of the life of a Japanese woman on WWII. A refreshing take on its subject matter.
An emotional movie that is animated beautifully. It's nice to see the impact of war from an innocent bystanders view.
It’s absolutely beautiful. It went against all my expectations. Such a tearjerker. Would recommend.
That feeling of dread, of loss, that comes from war is poked through by a small bit of hope for humanity and a better tomorrow.
Great way to tell this story. Beautiful, haunting story that moves at a gradual pace towards a moving conclusion
Charming movie that turns very dark in the last few parts
A movie that really makes you think while evoking heartfelt emotions as well.
That's pretty tough but one time they fucked up my order at the local Wendy's and I was so goddamn pissed.
This film brings you to rural Japan at the height of WWII to show how important it is to remember the people that become entangled in war.
Some really pretty shots, with some effective perspectives on war from a citizens eyes. This film does suffer from being boring though.
