Good educational movie, with a beautiful artistic direction, but too short to really devellope the characters, and tell the story. This is more like a poem than a novel. But pretty good. The direction of is efficient and the animation (by mushii production) verry good for what it tells. Really made for children, but can be appreciated by its poetic dimension.

Bon film éducatif, avec une belle direction artistique, mais aussi trop court pour vraiment développer les personnages et raconter l'histoire. C'est plus un poème qu'un roman. Mais ça va c'est assez bien. La réalisation est efficace et l'animation (par mushi production) est très bonne pour read more

Japan nowadays. Tomoko, a little girl, visits the city of Hiroshima. That's where she admires the statue of a crane, symbol of peace, called the "Bird of Happiness". Suddenly, the statue starts to sparkle and even to move. Another little girl then appears through the lights, Sadako, who lived in Hiroshima after WW2. She starts telling Tomoko her story. The two little girls soon become inseparable.
Sadako Sasaki, was 2 years old when the U.S. dropped the bomb on her city during WWII. Sadako takes Tomoko on an eye-opening journey. A true story - minus the crane.
