Description
In this period war epic by the director of House of Flying Daggers and Raise the Red Lantern, a self-serving American mortician (Christian Bale) finds refuge with a group of convent girls in a church during Japan's 1937 attack on Nanking. (The invading army overran the then-Chinese capital, killing an estimated 200,000 Chinese and raping 20,000 women.) Also hiding out is a group of colorfully clad prostitutes, including one (Ni Ni) who speaks English. Posing as a priest, the mortician attempts to lead the women to safety. A Golden Globe nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, this 2011 release was also China's Academy Award entry for Best Foreign Language Film. In English, Mandarin and Japanese with English subtitles.

"Bale gives a fully invested performance as an opportunist who grows a conscience."—Village Voice

"A beautiful story of untold heroism. I recommend it highly."—Rex Reed, New York Observor
