Gembaku no ko (Children of Hiroshima)
In this Japanese semi-documentary, a teacher and her ex-students offer their view of the horrible aftermath of the A-bomb in their city. The film was designed to generate sympathy from the American people responsible for the devastation. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"With Japan facing a new nuclear crisis, this beautifully composed and acted heart-wrencher couldn't be more timely."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"A sense of immediacy, or working through recent and almost unfathomable trauma, is palpable in the film, much of which was shot in Hiroshima itself."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"Its cup may runneth over, yet the stark vibe is impossible to shake."
‑ David Fear, Time Out New York
