Note & Recenzii

  1. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Nanking

    In large parts this is an indigestible documentary. Not only the often inappropriate reenactment of historical text sources through speaking actors (and their facial play) are hard to bear but also the nearly permanent emotionalizing musical background (and neglect of possible semantic contexts of the music itself). Problematic is also the lack of historical reflexion and/or contextualization.
