Highly entertaining and fun based on a movie called MacArthur's children 1984 which was watanabe's debut, this movie was a good remake and I loved it.
The story starts during the world war 2, in a small island in Japan far away from all the war, the only thing they know about war is that some of the young men on the island get chosen to serve in the army, and the little propaganda speeches they hear on the radio, the story moves on quick to when Japan was defeated in 1945.
The movie is about how the lives change after the defeat and how many things change from the point of view of war heroes who became war criminals after the lose, the students (10 year old) who lost their parents during the war, and the scary rumors about the Americans that was spread between the students.
The students and island people start moving on and adapting to good changes and go through life by sharing their love to a team sport newly introduced to them (baseball)
All these changes were perfectly narrated in this 2 hour long beauty.
Emi takei plays the role of the elementary teacher,
