The critical consensus

A girl is married off to a boy she barely knows in this rich but unfocused anime.

***(*)(*)Wendy Ide, The Observer, 25/06/2017

What emerges is an exquisitely rendered, sensitively told study of survival during wartime, couched in minutely observed day-to-day details that slowly bring the title's significance into deeply tender, poignant focus.

****(*)Kevin Harley, The List, 26/06/2017

A gorgeously rendered and deeply personal portrayal of a young woman’s life in the part of the world where history’s greatest conflict reached a devastating conclusion.

****(*)Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 19/06/2017

An exquisite portrait of Hiroshima before the bomb that conjures a powerful sense of what – and who – was lost.

*****Stephen Kelly, Total Film, 26/06/2017

This affecting story of domestic life is beautifully realised with a feathery, watercolour palette of pale colours and fuzzy horizons.
