Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "In This Corner of the World" thrives when it lingers on incidental observations of life in wartime.
Fresh: A wistfully nostalgic time capsule of civilian life under the catastrophic tide of war.
Fresh: Suzu's story becomes so deeply personal that when an animated hand waves at the audience at the film's conclusion, we will feel like waving back, like we would to a friend.
Fresh: It's the images that are meant to stay with us, and they do.
Such a good movie
Really good, it's both traumatic and uplifting at the same time, I absolutely recommend it to anyone, regardless if you are a fan of anime or not
Absolutely love it
It’s an emotional rollercoaster with stunning visuals, there are a few action scenes but you don’t get a whole lot of the battles. Just air raids, which is historically accurate. I will say though, don’t watch this if you’re already having a bad day.
WWII story of a young girl artist who gets married and moves to Kure from Hiroshima, leaving her family behind, only to loose them in the war. Touching an sweet. A more inspiring film than "Grave of the Fireflies". Stunning yet simple animation.
