[T]he director and his team clearly put lots of research into the realistic renderings of wartime Kuru and Hiroshima, with particular emphasis on decors, costumes and props...

Rating: 3/4 -- From the casualties-of-war file comes a gorgeous-looking animated feature from the writer-director Sunao Katabuchi. Full Review

3 stars out of 4 -- Ultimately, IN THIS CORNER OF THE WORLD is a stark reminder of what wartime does to those ethereal elements of humanity that we truly need to survive: dreaming, art, love, etc.
Rating: 4/5 -- It has jaw-droppingly gorgeous settings, in which all the buildings are depicted with full accuracy, as are the homes of the peasant families who live on a mountain slope, overlooking the (largely wooden) city. Full Review
