Chinese peasant, Japanese schoolgirl and Russian soldier(girl) fleeing from Japanese army
7 January 2007 | by sebastian-bauschSee all my reviews

Real bad effects, but nice story, actually the first movie I saw in Chinese TV which is not just Japan bashing. Instead it really tries to take a different approach, remarkable for a Chinese movie. Also compared to the directors earlier works, which were merely propaganda movies. I hope that this start of a new way to reflect about the past, away from the stereotypes. An similar development which also took place in western war movies. In this movie Japanese are not only shown as inhumane, sadistic monsters, but you could see the fascist machinery behind the system, literally eating its own children. Finally I hope it helps to improve Chinese-Japanese relations too.
