Note & Recenzii

  1. Guillaume's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    Beautifully shot, but unfortunately, a lot of scenes are just too long, especially when they develop just exactly as you expect them to. But that's maybe a Chinese sensibility that I don't have. Apparently an accurate depiction of the historical period though (unfortunately).

  2. Márcio Padilha's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    The depth of this historical drama is subliminally enhanced as it is recounted through the director's lenses by means of color intensity and camera movement. An absolutely gorgeous depiction of a horrible historical chapter between China and Japan.

  3. tinderness's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    Ein letzten Endes sehr berührender Film, ohne jemals rührselig zu sein. Grausame und brutale Kamerafahrten, dann wieder stilles, sehr sensibles Kino mit klugen und einfühlsamen Dialogen. Ich mochte den Fim sehr ...

  4. moviedream's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    Fantastic, outstanding film. Quite a remarkable story. Incredible performances! I definitely recommend you see this film.

  5. Savannah Shoff's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    The Flowers of War was a historical Japanese imperialism film in which Christian Bale starred. Quite an odd placement for Christian Bale as this was a full-fledged Japanese film. Bale took the role and did a fantastic job with it. This movie was very well done, though it could have used slight editing marks here and there, throughout the film. This film focuses on unnatural lifely things such as rape and emotions.

  6. Loz Loory's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    What a mess. Christian Bale attempts to imitate Harrison Ford, but comes across as tediously grandiose. Worst offense is the overly tidy plot of 13 students exchanged for 13 women: probably better for a stage play. Production design particularly cheap with the stained glass window: appears to be plastic as has no lead panes. Outside battle scenes missing crucial coverage. Sacrifice of prostitutes problematic.

  7. Clarke Green's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    Overdone, often lurid, overwrought. Shallow writing and one dimensional characters, more propaganda than an honest examination of historical events.

  8. Kenneth Gentry's rating of the film The Flowers of War

  9. tyb's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    While technically proficient (especially the camera work), it gets a bit too propagandic, and somehow seems like an insensitive kind of movie to make about one of the worst massacres ever committed. Bale doesn't exactly help on that front either.

  10. Nachtreich's rating of the film The Flowers of War

  11. misu's rating of the film The Flowers of War

  12. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film The Flowers of War

  13. Nicolás Mauricio Bello's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    una dualidad interesante, un final bondadoso y magnifico.

  14. Vinod Narayan's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    Christian Bale is a terrific actor and he did good as the american mortician in this movie. But I felt the movie had many unwanted scenes with untimely crude humor which was unnecessary when you try to tell the story of the "Rape of Nanking" during the second sino-Japanese war.

  15. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    What you're really doing when you make a slick state-sanctioned comic strip version of one of the darkest hours of 20th century history, replete with mustache-twirling villains, slow-mo blood sprays, hookers with hearts of gold, and heroic Chinese soldiers who can wipe out whole platoons of Japs singlehandedly, is pissing on the memory of the victims. Zhang, who once had talent, is a pretty contemptible character.

  16. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film The Flowers of War

  17. cathika's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    12 prostitutes vs 12 vergins, a hero and a truly generous final subversion toward sacrifice. Sublime!

  18. Hassel Porta's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    Incredible true story, so powerful and a tribute to the human spirit

  19. Maria Carolina Francese's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    A great story of change and altruism in a horrific scenario. This movie makes you think over it again and again.

  20. TFCHooligan69's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    The sick, depraved, inhumane, evil things we humans are driven to do all in the service of those in power.

  21. rado's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    Invading a country is unnatural, like masking corruption as innocence. War is deception for all parties involved and they can never go back to decency. Only pretend.

  22. Daniella's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    First half of the movie is very irregular, and needs serious editing; second half picks up but the damage has been done for the viewer and it does not compensate for the first half. Not my favorite Zhang Yimou film. Bale does just "O.K.".

  23. Fainéant's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    Liked everything except Christian Bale. Blegh

  24. the.deft.one's rating of the film The Flowers of War

    As uncompromisingly brutal as it is sympathetically Chinese, this dramatisation of Japanese Imperialism, namely the Rape of Nanking, is impeccably polished and gorgeous to look at. The curious casting of Bale works for me – I’d say it is his most appealing performance. Zhang is becoming a firm favourite.
