Nanjing! Nanjing!

tintinmugshot's rating of the film City of Life and Death

It´s one of the best war movies ever made. Don´t stick with the Schindler´s List comparison, this is much more rough, violent, visceral. This is not Hollywood. And what the war is? That´s why I like this kind of cinema´s masterpiece. It makes me think how rough the world was, is, and will be. And let´s pray for a brighter day, to all of us. Because, in the very end, all we can do is pray.
