The Flowers of War

GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINEE, BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM

Director Yimou (Raise the Red Lantern) shrinks the Nanjing Massacre — during which Japanese soldiers killed more than 200,000 Chinese and raped an estimated 20,000 women — to a comprehensible, but no less horrific, case-in-point in this story of a mortician (Christian Bale) who becomes the unlikely protector of a group of schoolgirls. “[A] mature handling of historical horror.” (Exclaim)
