I finally got around to watching Grave of The Fireflies, a very emotional animated film. I don’t cry so easily while watching movies; that said, this particular scene is so very heartbreaking:

Setsuko: Seita. Have one.
[Holds out rocks]
Seita: Setsuko, what?
Setsuko: Rice balls. I made them for you. Here, have one.
[Seita starts crying]
Setsuko: You don’t want them?
Seita: Setsuko.

On this oldie video below, Roger Ebert discusses the importance of this film.
