Trivia

The scene in which the ROTC building was burned had to be reshot, because the original fire got out of control. That meant the ROTC facade had to be rebuilt in two days. See more »

A poignant view of America....
15 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie should be required viewing of every student (and some adults) in America. That would help to remind the entire country of its history. The lack of comments about this movie testify to the fact that this incident has been all but forgotten in a country that is so vocal about Tiananmen Square.
