During this time, Kamio returns home and learns that his mother died protecting his girlfriend, Taeko Nozaki, during an air raid on Kure.

We see in this film the faces of these young men and understand what situation they were coming from. Moriwaki ties Kamio to be hoisted aboard a rescue vessel and swims away to drown himself. I found myself with tears in my eyes from the very beginning, because it was as if all the black and white photographs I have been generously shown by these families were coming to life--the young faces of these sailors, frightened, proud, and eager to live up to their responsibilities, were very true to what I sense was really happening in the 1940s.
The crew opens fire with their anti-aircraft weapons as the planes appear. She is looking for a boat to take her to the site where the Yamato sank, to honor the crew on the 60th anniversary of the ship's last battle. We don't get a sense, for instance, about Japan's colonial presence throughout Asia and the Pacific--only the vague notion that Japan somehow got involved in war.

Yamato and the surviving ships return to Japan for repairs, while Uchida who lost his left eye in the battle is sent to a hospital to recover. But in general, this is a very fine film, extremely well acted and compassionately so by its cast. Here, the enemy is not the United States but rather masculinity and male pride itself, as well as the whole tragic story they create.
