– Godzilla de Ishirô Honda + Le Retour de Godzilla (HK Vidéo)

As devastating and catastrophic as all these ugly events of war were, and still are, director Ishiro Honda (who had visited Nagasaki after the war) decided to make a film that is Science Fiction in nature, but in reality tip-toes very lightly over some very brutal and harsh truths about atomic warfare and the effect it directly had on the Japanese, and ultimately, mankind. GODZILLA is so much more than just a “monster movie”.
