When the Wind Blows is one of the best films related to the topic of war and more specificaly atomic warfare.
The disturbing decline in health of the two characters, and their desire to "survive" left me feeling deeply saddened at the mere thought of atomic
exchanges ever taking place.
The very idea that a long, slow and painful death for any survivors of such a war should, I hope, be more than enough to prevent there ever being a
detonation of a nuclear device - at least no more than there have been so far.
It's a great film, and well worth a watch, regardless of age.
What really appeals to me most about the film, is that it was aimed at older children, as a way of teaching them that war is wrong, and that there are
better ways to resolve conflict than guns, and bombs.
Let's all hope that we realise this soon.
