On the Beach

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.

    I liked the movie. Katya thought it was a good movie, too, although, she glanced at the screen only once in a while; she thought the movie was too sad.
    Love, friendship, patriotism, hope, joy, laughter are there, while people simply die quietly. No danger or destruction is seen; invisible radiation kills the entire earth (description of the radioactivity was not accurate, but the concept holds).
    I did not recommend the movie, because for some people, this movie should remind of Fukushima.
    If you find the story interesting, it is worth checking. The actors were all good.
