searing film, beautifully photography. Why did this film not receive wide distribution in the US?
9 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would have given this film a 10, but what is disturbing is that the claims that it was based on a true story are only partly true. The film was based on the true story of Zhu De's ??? daughter Zhu Min ????, who went to the Soviet International Children's School at the age of 14. The film crew had contacted her and obtained her consent when making the film, although the most horrific and most unforgettable part was fictional (and there's the rub). Moreover, her father, Zhu De was not executed in China as a communist before the war. He became an important military figure and later leader in the government. (1954-59) as deputy chairman of the People's Republic of China. He was chairman of the National People's Congress (1959 -67), Communist China's major legislative body, until denounced during the Cultural Revolution . He was restored to his posts in 1971 and died in 1976. From what I understand, it is not unusual in China to call a story "true," despite the facts.
