During the dark days in which the Japanese Imperial Army occupied the central eastern Chinese city of Nanking, 300,000 individuals were tortured as war crimes raged out of control. In addition to the butchering of the Chinese military, the civilian population also suffered. Mixing actual footage and still photographs of the atrocity with stomach-churning reenactments of the crimes committed by the Japanese Imperial Army, director Tun Fei Mou's unforgettable account of the Nanking Massacre serves as a shocking and sickening reminder of the true horrors of war.
