Grave Of The Fireflies

‘Grave Of The Fireflies’

‘Grave Of The Fireflies’  

Against the backdrop of American bombings in Japan during the Second World War, a brother tries to take care of his little sister when they lose everything. The film shows that anime can evocatively portray emotionally captivating stories.




Loosely based on the life of two giants of the Tamil Nadu film industry and politics, it tells a story of friendship, love and ideological clashes. The Mani Ratnam flick with brilliant frames by Santosh Sivan and music by AR Rahman have fine performances by the cast.




A feel-good story about a teenager and the conflicts in his life. It portrays how love and compassion bond people.
