A reminder of history that is unknown to most people
27 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

The literal translation of the title of this film is: The Great Way.

This movie reminds audience an important historical fact: World War II did not begin in 1941 for China, instead, it started a decade ago when Japanese invaded Manchuria, the northeastern part of China.
