Trivia

(at around 1h 05 mins) While Jim and Dalforce volunteer fighter Ah Seng are sheltering amongst the huge buttress roots of a jungle tree, the injured Ah Seng launches weakly into the first five lines of a Mandarin song called 'March Of the Volunteers' (1934/35), translated as follows:-

Arise, all who refuse to be slaves! From our blood and flesh, let us build our new Great Wall! At the most perilous hour of the Chinese people, Every one of us is compelled to roar our last roar. Arise, arise, arise!

The song's Chinese title 'Yiyongjun jingxing qu' translates as: 'Advance of the Righteous, Courageous Volunteer Army', and refers to the volunteer fighters resisting Japan's military incursions of China during the 1930s.

Adopted as the national anthem of China provisionally in 1949 and officially in 1982, the song was featured during the flag-raising handover ceremony when Hong Kong reverted to China's rule in 1997. See more »

Quotes

Jim: [assuming Seng is enemy Japanese fighter, charges at him with fists up]
Seng: [urgently, in Hokkien] Wait wait wait wait wait! Me...
Seng: [points to Dalforce armband, then in halting English] Chinese... Chinese.

This is an excellent, unique film
17 June 2015 | by DollyrkrSee all my reviews

I'm repulsed at the moronic commentary on here. This movie is incredible. The only way to watch this is in the dark, with the sound all the way up. This is just amazing. Without any words an entire story is told. The use of light, of focus, of time... it is masterful. I think will be a sleeper. Only those who really appreciate beauty and magic will love this. The bird sounds and ambiance oftentimes reminded me of Herzog's Fitzcarraldo. This is an absolutely beautiful movie, I hope you see my review and not the jerks saying "it's boring, nothing happens" - omg, EVERYTHING HAPPENS. I was on the edge of my seat. The usage of sound is unparalleled. I actually feel the need to stress that I am in no way associated with filmmaking, I simply really appreciate this. It is Extremely Rare that an entire story is told vividly with atmospheric sound and visuals. Just a very special film. Do not miss.
