Great 1988 anime ‘Grave of the Fireflies’ screens at 28 Bay Area theaters

If you haven't seen "Grave of the Fireflies," one of the best anti-war films ever made and one of the great films of the 1980s, there is a golden opportunity to see a newly restored transfer of the film at a theater near you.

It happens to be a Japanese animated film, made by master director Isao Takahata ("Princess Kaguya"), who died in April at age 82.

Set during World War II in Kobe, it's about two children, a 13-year-old brother and his 5-year-old sister, who struggle to survive after their mother is killed in a bombing.

The story is too old to be commented.
