Nanjing, China 1937. Japanese forces invade this once-capital of the Republic of China on December 9th. Throughout the following six weeks, soldiers raped thousands of women and annihilated hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians - with mass executions; crowds mown down by firing squads, and victims digging their own graves. Few events carry the ugly and sickening connotations of what has become known as the 'Rape of Nanking'.

Director Lu Chuan tells the horrifying story through several figures, including a conscience-stricken Japanese soldier and John Rabe, a Nazi businessman who would ultimately save thousands of Chinese civilians' lives.

A very powerful film that makes you disgusted of the human race. The humiliation, torture and death that the chinese people (men, women and children) suffered in the hands of the Japanese army will chill you to the bone. A very important and moving film.

 Grim stuff. But then it should be.

This Chinese account of the appalling Rape of Nanking in 1937, when Japanese forces laid waste to the then Chinese capital, brutalising its population with some horrific abuses of human rights is a finely wrought affair. While it compellingly conveys much of the atrocities, including mass rape, and is beautifully crafted in striking black and white, it has a lack of focus. In some parts, it sides with the Chinese, in others it tries to view the events depicted from the point of view of a Japanese soldier. While this causes some confusion, the shocking nature of what happened there provides the real meat of the film.
