    Not a film for young children!!!!

    Here is an example of why you should closely monitor what your kids watch, and be especially careful of movies that are marketed to children, because they might not be at all suitable. Although this movie won first prize for best animation in a children's film festival in Chicago, it is not suitable for young children to watch. Yes, it had technically wonderful animation, and a good musical score. But the topic was beyond anything I'd let my kids watch. It's about two Japanese children in 1945 near the end of WW-II. Their dad is away in the Japanese navy. Their town is being strafed by Allied planes. Their mom dies after a firestorm. They are on their own. Relatives initially take them in, then throw them out after taking their rations because they don't want to share food with them. They are starving. No one gives them food or help. The boy is badly beaten. They get sick. The boy finds that the entire navy has been sunk, meaning that their dad is dead. The girl dies of hunger and malnutrition in a damp cave. The boy later starves to death in a railway station, and his body is carted away with dozens of other kids by the janitors. This is not entertainment for children.
