    Beautiful review. I also wanted to add that the love story between Jiro and the girl is very similar to the story of Richard Feynman (who is part in Manhattan Project) and his wife Arline who died of tuberculosis at early age.

      Thanks Maine! I never made that symbolic connection but it certainly fits, Feynman dove into his work on the Bomb as a copping mechanism for his wife’s severe illness. He never really considered what the end-game of his work was, years later I think he lamented having helped bring the Atomic bomb to realization. WGN’s Manhattan just premiered and seemingly will cover the conflicted nature of the scientists and engineers of the M.P. Just like Jiro here, a beautiful film about our dreams crashing into reality. Thanks for stopping by!
