The Rape of Nanking
19 August 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In December 1937, during the Second Japanese-Sino War, a Chinese doctor, his Japanese pregnant wife, their teenage daughter and their young son travel from Shanghai to Nanjing seeking shelter in the Capital during the Japanese invasion. The family faces the Rape of Nanking by the Imperial Japanese Army, with rapes, mass murder of prisoners of war and civilians including women, children and elders, and disrespect of international conventions.

"Nanjing 1937" is one of the most realistic films of a dirty war unknown for Westerners, the "Nanjing Massacre", a.k.a. the Rape of Nanking and produced by John Woo. The direction of Ziniu Wu is impressive and gives the sensation of a documentary to the viewer. Unfortunately this film has been released only on VHS in Brazil. I saw this great film for the first time on 14 March 2000 and today I have seen it again. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Tempos de Guerra" ("Times of War")
