Not an easy watch due to the subject matter - one reviewer described the film as "relentlessly, unforgettably horrific".

From Amazon - Nanjing, China 1937. Japanese forces invade this once-capital of the Republic of China on December 9th. Throughout the following six weeks, soldiers raped thousands of women and annihilated hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians with mass executions; crowds mown down by firing squads, and victims digging their own graves. Few events carry the ugly and sickening connotations of what has become known as the Rape of Nanking . Director Lu Chuan tells the horrifying story through several figures, including a conscience-stricken Japanese soldier and John Rabe, a Nazi businessman who would ultimately save thousands of Chinese civilians lives.

Chinese with english subtitles.

Excellent movie, but for those unaware, is in black and white with a Mandarin soundtrack.

Gets great reviews for quality http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/City-of-Life-and-Death-Blu-ray/8647/#Review [it's also region free]

I'd go for this myself, but already have copy on DVD.

Also known as Nanking, Nanking! in some regions..

not to be confused with Black Sun: The Nanking Massacre which is atrocious

Good brutal film but some might find it slow.
