GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES is a Japanese animation drama in which two children, a brother and sister, struggle to survive in war-torn Japan after their mother is killed in an air raid.

Disturbing images

There is sight of charred bodies on the ground following a bombing raid, casualties lying in hospital swathed in bloody bandages, and corpses being dumped into a mass grave. The strongest image shows a corpse wrapped from head to toe in bloody bandages.

There is infrequent use of very mild bad language, including 'bum', 'damn' and 'hell'.
