The award-winning story of IN THIS CORNER OF THE WORLD follows the coming of age of Suzu Urano, who in 1944 moves to the small town of Kure in Hiroshima to live with her husband’s family. Her perseverance and courage underpin this heart-warming and inspirational tale of the everyday challenges faced in the midst of a war-torn country – a poignant and exquisite film animation about rebuilding lives in the face of adversity.
“An elegant reminder that we can never forget what life during wartime does to the human soul.” – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
“CORNER is a deeply sympathetic tale, using the possibilities of animation not just to pique curiosity, but to devastate.” – Alan Zilberrman, Washington Post
“Suzu’s story becomes so deeply personal that when an animated hand waves at the audience at the film’s conclusion, we will feel like waving back, like we would to a friend.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
