  1. I liked the movie the first time I saw it, the second time I watched it I couldn’t help but be furious at the manipulation even down to the fact that the brother would willing let his sister die just because his aunt wants them to take the situation they are in seriously rather than looking the other way. Yes the Aunt is selfish and she takes allot form the kids but he would rather let his sister die a needless pointless prolonged death than even entertain the idea of going back to his aunt and saving her life, the cherry on top of it is that rather than blame himself as he should or even lamenting that her death could have been prevented if he had just swallowed his pride he instead immediately blames the American forces they are at war with for simply not rolling over and letting Japan win and holds onto that grudge all the way to his death.
