Nanking 2007

description written by member Zara:

Directed by the Academy-Award-winning team of Bill Guttentag and Dan Sturman ("Twin Towers") and marking the producing debut of AOL Vice Chairman Ted Leonsis, "Nanking" is a powerful reminder of the heartbreaking toll that war takes on the innocent, and a testament to the courage and conviction of a few individuals determined to act in the face of evil. The film tells the story of the Japanese invasion of Nanking, China in the early days of World War II and focuses on the efforts of a small group of unarmed Westerners who established a Safety Zone where over 200,000 Chinese found refuge. The events of the film are told through deeply moving interviews with Chinese survivors, archival footage, and chilling testimonies of Japanese soldiers, interwoven with staged readings of the Westerners' letters and diaries as performed by Woody Harrelson, Mariel Hemingway, Jurgen Prochnow, and Stephen Dorff, among others.

Nanking Movie Review by Jarrod (7/2/2008)

'Nanking' documents an event that has become known as the forgotten holocaust, at least by author Iris Chang, who wrote a book about Japanese atrocities in the Chinese city of Nanking in 1937-38, when hundreds of thousands of civilians were raped and murdered. Chang's work was dismissed as sensationalism, and so-called...

Nanking Movie Review by Movie Addict (4/30/2008)

I watch movies for two reasons: to be entertained, and to be informed. This is one of the most informative movies that I have ever seen.

The actions of the Japanese soldiers in 1937 as they invaded China was on a par with many of the atrocities that we have seen in our lifetime in Bosnia, Darfur, etc. It is a story that...
