Realism is tarnished by not using the actual name of the leader
The literal translation of the title of this film is: Bai-Se Uprising
The movie gives an accurate portray of the uprising lead by Deng Xiao-Ping who later becomes the paramount leader of China. Besides recreate the historical events exactly as they happened, another attempt of realism was to use the actual names of people involved, but the movie did not mention Deng for avoiding personal worship like Mao during the Cultural Revolution, but this tarnished the complete picture of realism because Deng was the most important player in this historical event, it is rather weird when other players had their real names used while Deng's was not.
