A few days ago, I had a conversation with a good friend about this book we both read when we were young. It's entitled Totto-Chan, Ang batang babae sa bintana (the little girl at the window). It's a Japanese book which has been translated to Tagalog. It's a very memorable book because not only is it extremely beautiful, it is also the first Tagalog novel I read as a kid.
I looked for my copy of Totto-Chan the first chance I got.
...And since my friend and I were already on the topic, she lent me a dvd of a Japanese film that also features the plight of children. This one is a war film and like most war films of the same genre, this also tugs at heart strings.
How 'bout you guys, ever come across any interesting films/books on the same genre? Or by a Japanese author/film maker? Suggestions are very much welcome!
