Tale of Two Cities is a famous American-produced film about the aftermath of the devastating nuclear weapon attacks on Nagasaki and Hiroshima from World War 2. The powerful footage shows the destruction of the two cities months after the attacks, including ground zero and the shadows of vaporized people. The film is punctuated by interviews with locals, including atomic bomb survivors. The narration hints at the guilt that America as a country felt after the attacks, with the dubious claim (repeated twice) that the bombs had been detonated at a high enough elevation that fallout would not harm the populace. A pillar of American and World history, Tale of Two Cities is a gripping examination of the first atomic bomb explosions and the death and destruction they caused.
