READ THIS An animated look at an elderly couple in sussex england after a missile strike hits england/ Good bits: /0:00:20 david bowie intro (song of the same name) /0:28:51 the missile strike /1:00:19 the imaginary russian man /1:12:33 goodbye....... /1:20:32 MAD (moarse code) /basic summery: When the Wind Blows depicts a nuclear attack on the UK by the Soviet Union from the viewpoint of a retired couple, Jim and Hilda Bloggs. The Bloggs live in rural Sussex and are confused regarding the nature and seriousness of their situation. This confusion is sometimes used to generate gentle comedy as well as darker elements. As the film progresses, things become steadily more hopeless as the couple suffer from the effects of radiation sickness. The film ends on an extremely bleak note, with them praying in their fallout shelter as death approaches. At the very end of the closing credits, a morse code can be heard, spelling "MAD".

The Morse code: "MAD" in an event like this stands for:
Mutually Assured Destruction, which means that the country that was nuked has nuked the country back, it's basically saying "They hit us pretty bad, but we aren't going down before we hit them back just as hard."

These are without a doubt the dumbest people on the face of the planet however accurately nobody knew how powerful an atomic bomb really was unless you were in the blast radius. People in Europe experienced Frequent Bombing but at a magnitude of this caliber nobody expected the horrifying outcome

So in a sense this movie is very cheesy but strangely symbolic.
