      one star reviewer

      If people make a film that involves World War II, they must "apologise to the victimized country first to show their sincerity." If they don't make it into "Hiroshima, Hiroshima" or "Wu Shi Wu City", they will be sorry for Nanjing, sorry for China, and sorry for the victimized countries all over the world. Then you are To watch a movie or to humiliate others to enjoy yourself? Let's not say how deeply the director wants to hide the intention of exoneration, but of course, it should be a life...

      Using the seemingly warm plot, there is no lower limit to whitewash.

      The seemingly mild and confused heroine is simply the hypocritical character of the Japanese self-proclaimed peace-loving. We can't ask a housewife to have too much political and historical concept, but the director made the film because he wanted to see the big from the small and did not reflect at all, as if the Japanese people were restrained and modest during the war. How can it be? ! War is the most test of human nature. It seems that the husband is a gentle person, what is the matter...

      In the end, she asked why she lost the battle, which is worth pondering.

      The skills are very superb, comparing real life with the fantasy world of the little confused heroine, and strengthening the depression and despair a hundred times. There is one thing at the end that makes people feel shitty in an instant: the emperor delivered a speech on defeat, and the heroine cried, "We actually lost the battle? We have suffered for so long, but we lost the battle." On the one hand, the character's point of view does not equal the author's point of view. As an ordinary...

      The quality of a movie is the difference between the high and the low; the political orientation is the difference between the left and the right

      DS has been banned.

      Who is the film responsible for?

      Movies are responsible to their creators.

      Creators are responsible to investors.

      Investors are responsible for the box office.

      What is the box office, the box office is money.

      From the Poison movie: "In This Corner of the World" claims to be an anti-war movie, but the whole movie doesn't mention the matter of Japan's war. A person who does not understand history will think that Japan is pure like a white lotus after watching this film, and it is completely a victim of war.

      Director Piaoyuan Xuzhi has shaped the characters in the film into loyal fans of the state apparatus, and dedication to the country has become the spiritual belief of these people,...

      Why dare not face history, Japan may never have a true anti-war movie. Hard life for civilians under war? I only think of the compatriots in Nanjing who died tragically in purgatory. Also, Nenian's dubbing...

      Just as a technical aspect of an animated film, it deserves 4 stars, with a fresh style of painting, gentle narration, and delicate characters. It shows the difficulties and helplessness of ordinary people in the cruel war with a warm story. But these warmth and hope, no matter how you look at it, have the taste of whitewashing Japan's war crimes, it seems that it can't be scored zero, so give it one...

      Forgive me for only giving such a low score. After reading it carefully on the way home, I feel very heavy. Indeed, the physical and spiritual disasters brought to the people by the war are indelible. But it is very unacceptable that the film blurs what Japan did to other countries during World War II and cannot express it objectively. The style of painting is very fresh, but the worldview of the whole film is in a way of weakening the mistakes that Japan has made, which is...

      There is a family where the man likes to go out to kill, arson, rape and loot, and his wife and children cheer for him from behind. Too many people were harmed by his family, so the victims united and beat him up. The family quickly hid at home and cried, saying "we are innocent, we are victims". Victim's...

      It really is the threshold for a true portrayal of the brilliance of human nature. The threshold for the brilliance of human nature is really lower every year. Human nature brilliance can be achieved at every turn. Do you dare to be worse than the Chinese people at the same...
