I had trouble with the structure, child acting and reading. Rojaku beauty but lacked yugen for me and there wasn't enough hana to make up for it... The blocking was aesthetically pleasing, but the 90s university t-shirts really turned me off. Still, a couple of really great scenes... Worth a watch.
An examination of the generational divide in post-war Japan and how the atomic bomb figures into the lives of those who experienced the bombings and the people who now live in that legacy. Told through a slow, almost poetic story, 'Rhapsody' falters in some places, but the scene in which the children examine the memorials donated to Japan by various world powers makes for a harrowing statement.
