This film does not shy away from brutality
2 January 2004 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Hong Ying Tao is a brutally true story about atrocities and inhumanity from a child's point of view. Excellent performances highlight. However, this movie does not shy away from the darkest and ugliest side of humans so it's more than a little hard to sit through. Having said that, I feel this is an important film with an important message so suck it up and watch it.
