I never fully comprehended the aftermath effects of a nuclear attack until seeing the stock footage in the opening minutes of the film. This must have been quite the emotion-shaker back in 1959. I found every moment of the movie thought provoking and fascinating--until the last 5 minutes. I didn't get that ending at all.
This movie is like one of Linklater's "Before" movies but with a more apparent plot and a darker atmosphere. If you like watching two people having conversation and you wouldn't mind some graphic montage about the aftermath of atomic bombing, this is a perfect movie for you.
