Loved it, but not something I can see myself watching often. Unless I'm way too happy and need to suddenly get depressed for some reason.

A great, thoughtful movie that kind of makes you go "oh YEAH" when the director talks about how stupid the kid was. He basically doomed his sister to an early death because their Aunt was annoying and crabby.

Some great, sad moments, though. The little boy having to buy some cremation stuff from a guy, burn his sister to ashes, and then slowly starves to death in Japan just before the Americans show up to feed everybody. The look he gives the audience at the end, like "you SEE what shit we went through?" How the Americans are sort of treated like the monster in a monster flick- this great faceless force that's only seen in the sky and rains fire.
