Plot

An elderly woman living in Nagasaki Japan takes care of her four grandchildren for their summer vacation. They learn about the atomic bomb that fell in 1945, and how it killed their Grandfather. Richard Gere guest stars as an American nephew of the elderly woman. In Japan, a family reunion around a matriarch, survivor of the bombing of Nagasaki, sparks her memories of that day, in a journey towards the understanding of human nature.
 

Comments

Quite sad, but powerful movie We won't forget the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and Akira Kurosawa makes sure of that, but not with a revengeful attitude, rather as a reminder to all humanity that we must care for each other and respect one another because the consequences of not doing so will be paid by all human beings.
