When I was a kid, I liked science fictions. I also read introductory books on science fictions.
“On the Beach” was one of the stories. I have had no chance to read it.
On Sunday, I happened to find the DVD. I saw the movie.
It is a story about the world in 1964 after the atomic war, WW III. People live only in the Southern Hemisphere. They keep the civilization and lived normally and quietly until the last moment.
No physical damage was shown in the film. Radiation was only indicated by a meter.
It was a quiet movie.
