Imamura's adaptation of the acclaimed novel by Masuji Ibuse horrifyingly depicts the devastation of Hiroshima by the first atomic bomb, and explores the despair of the survivors uncomprehendingly condemned to a slow death by the contaminated black rain that falls shortly afterwards. Seriously intentioned and extremely moving.
