It’s been a while since I’ve seen a good movie like this one. It was really good & touching!
The movie talks about the time when the Japanese army invaded China & brutally killing everyone infront of them not sparing any soul, not even the children! Specially young girls, they used to rape them, torture them & then kill them. (The Japanese were really awful). A drunken man (Christian Bale) saves 2 girls escaping from the Japanese army & takes them to the church where they supposedly cannot be touched by the Japanese army, another group of girls join them. A group of women from the brothel also join them later on & the story begins. They all want to leave Nanking (the occupied city) with the help of John (Christian Bale) because he’s a Westerner & no one would speak to him, but will they all be able to escape? You gotta watch the movie
The setting, the plot, the script, the acting are perfect. Though, the movie has some disturbing scenes, they don’t show you alot, but it’s still disturbing!
