    City of War: The Story of John Rabe is a French, Chinese and German co-production that tells the story of the ‘Rape of Nanking’ between 1937-38 and how German businessman John Rabe helped save hundreds of thousands of Nanking residents from the fate that befell hundreds of thousands of others. It’s a shameful period in Japanese history that some still deny ever happened, despite all the evidence and eventual acknowledgement by the government several decades later. City of War is essentially a Chinese version of Schindler’s List, but nonetheless presents a story well worth telling and does a fairly decent job even if it lacks some of the cinematic poetry of Spielberg’s much loved film. Out this month in the UK is City of Life and Death too that tackles the same subject matter though. From the reviews I’ve seen of that it sounds like a more harrowing experience focusing on the atrocities themselves and not on John Rabe and those trying to put a stop to them. Without seeing it I can’t recommend one over the other, but my instincts tell me that City of Life and Death will be the more powerful film. I’ll certainly try and track it down to compare the two.

    I thought that that movie with the Sons of Japan in it would have been done about Nanking. Looks interesting though the insignia on the "Japanese" uniforms is pretty cheap-looking.

    I wouldnt mind seeing that other movie too,.

    More greats.

    Battle of the Bulge w/ Robert Shaw as Col Hessler and Charles Buchinsky (Bronson) as Major Wolenski. I dont care what ohers say but that is an EXCELLENT war movie, correct tanks be damned.

    Burton in The Longest Day. That movie will ALWAYS be supreme over saving private ryan-anyime, anyday any occasion.
