City of Life and Death

Although personally I think Kadokawa deserves some space on this poster... the movie was really great. Though it had its share of blames for portraying a Japanese soldier "in a positive light", I thought that's not really a fair criticism for the movie...
I admire the director's courage (?) for deciding to portray not only the said Japanese soldier but also the character Mr. Tang, who would be considered as a Hanjian (traitor) and whose personality and actions would be portrayed as completely negative in traditional Chinese WWII films...
Having said that...the scenes of the movie were very..... ..... ... shocking, to some extent...especially if one considers how things like this happened in actual history. I couldn't stop crying for the entire time I was sitting in the theatre. But these things are really hard to explain in words (especially at such late hour at night lol)...

Yes if you're in Toronto this weekend (Sept.19) go see it @ the Toronto International Film Festival!!
