  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.

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.
