This movie just came out in the States and oh my it looks gorgeous. Directed by Zhang Yimou and starring Christian Bale, this movie looks to be a big hit, it has already been nominated for a Golden Globe. The story takes place during Japan’s invasion of China back in 1973, Christian Bale is a westerner who helps a group of Chinese people and seeks refuge in a church.

The movie seems to have it all, action, drama, romance and I just love war movies and this has an interesting touch. The movie is not a history lesson but rather taken from a different perspective where the story is told through the eyes and experiences of these young people.

Is it me or this just reminds me of The Last Samurai, was a great movie though.
