Iris Chang: The Rape of Nanking (2007) Movie Review

16 May 2009 10:26 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

“Iris Chang - The Rape of Nanking” is a documentary produced in 2007 by the Toronto based ‘Association for Learning and Preserving the History of WWII in Asia’ to mark the 70th anniversary of the Nanking Massacre. The film is based upon Chang’s bestselling 1997 book “The Rape of Nanking: The Forgotten Holocaust of World War II”, and charts her own experiences while drawing upon archive footage and interviews from survivors and experts from China, Japan, Canada, and the United States. The results are heartbreaking, shocking and fascinating, despite the bizarre decision to include dramatic recreations of Chang’s own life. In these, the writer, who committed suicide in November 2004, is played by television actress Olivia Cheng, who does at least look vaguely like Chang. However, her scenes are uniformly excruciating and wholly unnecessary, especially given that the documentary also features plenty of actual footage of and interviews with Chang herself. »
