Kuroi ame

Shôhei Imamura Japan, 1989

Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Schwarzer Regen

Black Rain follows a family in the aftermath of the Hiroshima bombing. While a little goofy in places, because it is Imamura and the 80s after all. It is mostly horrifying and represents a hell on earth that only a few hundred thousand unfortunate souls got to experience. The style is intentionally dated and could pass as a 50s film.
