    Well that was a mighty depressing film. And I loved it. I even think it might be one of my favourites ever. Films are supposed to make you feel, and this one surely made me feel A LOT. I was basically going through the whole film with tears in my eyes because I knew what was coming, and I completely bawled at the end. If you're looking for a film that rips your heart out and stomps on it, then this is the right film for you. 4 years 1 month ago

    A great masterpiece of animation. I must say there are very few movies that made my sister cry (she's a pretty tough one) but this made her cry as I've never seen her before. Much appreciate the great dynamic between brother and sister in such terrible historical moment. I must say, the animation was on point and twenty-five years later still amazes the crowd. 3 years 11 months ago
