The Best Film of of 2011, 19 December 2011
10/10

No doubt, The Flowers Of War is the best film of 2011 and one of the best films of Yimou Zhang like Huozhe(To Live) and Hong Gao Liang(Red Sorghum).

The history is true, this story is also true. The movie and novel are adapted from the Diary of Minnie Vantrin(from the files of Nanjing Massacre), Minnie is a churchwoman of USA died in 1941.

The movie is really tragic but beautiful, various goodness and evil of human nature were embodied fully and clearly and exquisitely under the beast of war............I just feel deeply sad and touching.

Postscript: the performance of Christian Bale is really wonderful. Bale will win his another Oscar by this film.
