Nanjing! Nanjing!

Lu Chuan Hong Kong, 2009

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

Rarely do films touch me the way this one did. A haunting and very disturbing image of a part of history I never knew about. Apart from the striking techniques Lu used to create an atmosphere of pure horror, what stuck most was "Let them go. Life is more difficult than death." Thought-provoking till the end.
