Big thumb down for the governmental censorship that changed the story
The literal translation of the title of this movie is: One woman in the forest of the mountain.
This movie deserves a big thumb down for that the governmental censorship forcing the film crew to change the story.
Originally, this movie is based on the true story, and the characters, setting, and story are pretty much the same as what we see in the movie. However, the only difference between the reality and the movie is also the most important one: Time.
The time when the true story really happened in real life was during the Cultural Revolution, not during World War II, hence the characters was escaping the political turmoil not war, and the college student was trying to uncover the ugly past which the government would rather not to talk about.
Obviously, the script did not pass the governmental censorship for the first time because it was 100% real, so the second time, the time was changed to World War II, hence the cause of the tragedy became war instead of political movements, and this is what we see in the movie today, and for the same reason, it deserves a big thumb down.
