The Flowers of War (2011)

Directed by: Zhang Yimou
Country: China

Plot: A Westerner finds refuge with a group of women in a church during Japan's rape of Nanking in 1937. Posing as a priest, he attempts to lead the women to safety.
Quick comment: I thought something decent would come out of this, regarding the career of director Zhang Yimou and actor Christian Bale. But I was completely wrong. It stands ridiculously out of reality and should be shortened for at least 1 hour. So my advice is: don’t waste your time on this. Instead I would recommend "city of life and death"(2009) which deals with the same subject.
