  1. Jim Fear's rating of the film Barefoot Gen

    That atomic bomb scene is soul crushing.

  2. ijol's rating of the film Barefoot Gen

    I love how there are some funny parts to balance with the fact that this movie brings up a devastating theme. Makes it more "enjoyable" than its manga. The graphic scenes are gory and heartbreaking at the same time.

  3. Nino Lasso's rating of the film Barefoot Gen

    A lousy adaptation of the 1973 manga of the same name, is mostly remembered because of a pretty specific sequence (shocking in animation's standards) which is sandwiched in an otherwise unremarkable and slow film. You're better off reading the source material or watching Grave of the Fireflies, an emotional gauntlet that is way better in almost every aspect.

  4. hanon152's rating of the film Barefoot Gen

    una gran pelicula emotiva y super realista, sobre la segunda guerra mundial y el horror vivido por la bomba de hiroshima.

  5. Mohammad Aboomar's rating of the film Barefoot Gen

    A really difficult film to watch...

  6. ennui.'s rating of the film Barefoot Gen

    The story (Reality) itself, very much hard to deal with it. Damn. We have the desire to survive even we've lost too much.

  8. ΞRIC B∆D TASTΞ's rating of the film Barefoot Gen

    a very tragic part in the history of the world, but anyway - i really dislike it, never came into the movie & the characters aren't symp. to me.

  9. Keith Fletcher's rating of the film Barefoot Gen

    Don't let the picture fool you, this is an unflinching look at the bombing of Hiroshima and is VERY graphic for an animated film.

  10. Seyfi Demirci's rating of the film Barefoot Gen

    Etkileyici ve sempatik karakterler eşliğinde ilerleyen hikaye, filmi başyapıt yapmaya yetecek değerlik de.İtalyan neorealist filmlerin tadında.

    Savaş,Hiroşima açlık susuzluk hastalık ölüm ama yine de aile bağları ve sevginin birleşimi izlemeye değer.

  12. Teruma Kato's rating of the film Barefoot Gen

    A movie adapted from classic anti-nuke manga series. I think the manga is one of the most important pieces of literature from Japan. The movie doesn't have a great production value and it is not very good. But, it is powerful nonetheless. Netflix says this is a "fantasy" movie. How sad. All the incidents depicted in the movie are based from facts. How sad and maddening.

  13. Yuri La's rating of the film Barefoot Gen

    Solidarity and a sense of community on collective tragedies, that's the message of a film that has much more cultural and educational value than artistic and cinematic. The realistic approach leaves its marks as the bombing on bodies, and that's was remarkable for the animation world as in Takahata's Grave of the fireflies later. The manga is surely even more revealing.

  14. Alp Arslan's rating of the film Barefoot Gen

    Its a really sad story, yet very encouraging at the same time. It really takes away all that melancholy when he decides to move on and keep his promise to his father.

  15. pandakuma's rating of the film Barefoot Gen

    been reading the manga when i was in elementary school and never knew this was made into an anime until now. touching and depressing at the same time.
