4 Stars (out of 4)

Orphans After the Storm

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Isao Takahata's classic anime Grave of the Fireflies is very simply the gentlest and most touching war-related film I've ever seen. A young man and his little sister attempt to survive after air raid kills their family. The disc contains a commentary track, an interview with Roger Ebert, and other stuff.
