As she combats her daily struggles in Hiroshima during World War II, an 18-year-old Suzu gets married and deals with the terrible impact war has on ordinary people

Hailed as one of the best Japanese films of the year, this enthralling and powerful animated historical drama is set in the 1930s and ‘40s in Hiroshima and Kure, Japan, roughly straddling the period before and after the atomic bomb struck Hiroshima. It follows a young woman, whose family cultivates edible seaweed, who agrees to an arranged marriage to a young man who works as a civilian for the navy. As the Pacific War approaches, her story charts rationing, bombings and the terrible impact war has on ordinary people

Nominated Best International Film, Edinburgh International Film Festival

Winner Best Animation Film, Japanese Academy Awards

“A gorgeously rendered and deeply personal portrayal of a young woman’s life in the part of the world where history’s greatest conflict reached a devastating conclusion.” – Empire Magazine

“Confronting the horrors of history head-on can make for cinema that’s impossible to shake, but Katabuchi’s painterly, introspective film proves a sideways approach can be just as indelible.” – Daily Telegraph
