Grave Of The Fireflies (Hotaru No Haka)

The next day, Seita finds her sister digging a hole in the ground. Puzzled, he asks her the reason for this behavior. Innocently, Setsuko replies that she is digging a grave for the fireflies, her aunt having explained to her that this had been done for her mother. Overwhelmed by this gesture, remembering the unbearable images of her mother's body thrown into a pit, Seita can no longer contain herself and cries bitterly. He promises Setsuko that they will one day visit their mother's grave.

Grave of the Fireflies (Hotaru no haka)

Japanese nouns do not change to form plurals, so hotaru can refer to one firefly or many. Seita and Setsuko catch fireflies and use them to illuminate the bomb shelter in which they live. The next day, Setsuko digs a grave for all of the dead insects, and asks "Why do fireflies die so soon?", so the title might serve to heighten the symbolic and thematic significance of the incident.

That Japan will lose is made clear when, the next morning, Setsuko digs a grave for the fireflies that have died during the night. At this point, she says that mother must have such a grave too, revealing that she is aware that her mother has died. This grave of the fireflies is not only for her mother, and eventually for the children, but also signifies the destruction of the battleships that Seita had imagined the previous night.

So from the movie list of my online friend i finally watched the grave of fireflies and the emotions the emotions in that movie chico they touched the heart. Its not a romantic movie its a war movie how the war affected the families and trust me when i say its a beautiful movie. Its the only movie I've cried senseless while watching and i dont cry while watching movies coz in the corner of my mind its always going on that they are just acting but not this one. This one hit the feels Did anyone else have watched it. Please share ur experience if u did.

The siblings bring a couple of fireflies into the shelter to get some light. However, the morning after Setsuko finds out that the fireflies are dead. Upset, the little girl digs a small grave and buries them. At this point, Setsuko is aware that her mother is dead. 041b061a72
