    Synopsis


    Hiroshima
    This Canadian-Japanese co-production uses both vintage historical footage (including armed forces films and period newsreels) and contemporary dramatic reenactments to tell the story of how the scientific and military minds behind the Manhattan Project, under the orders of President Harry Truman (Kenneth Welsh), developed the first atomic bomb. The weapon was first used to attack the city of Hiroshima near the end of World War II, changing forever the shape of modern warfare and bringing fearsome devastation to a previously quiet Japanese city. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      I think that "Hiroshima" was one of the greatest classic war films of all-time and it was also one of my favorite classic war films of all-time. I have seen and enjoyed this film several times and I also think that "Hiroshima" had a lot of entertaining, exciting and enjoyable drama including original and inspiring personal storylines.

      If you enjoy historical re-enactments this mini-series on Hiroshima is for you. Although this is a fictional account and not a documentary doesn't matter. You will enjoy this mini-series!

      Great movie. Learned some things I didn't know. However, considering that this movie is a "re-enactment" of actual events, I wish the Japanese dialog was in English and not sub titled!

      I like anything (except obvious lies) about World War II. Saw it when it first came out and now have my own copy.

      War is ugly, regardless of the reason for its existence. Terrible and devolving of humanity is the net result.
