Flowers of War
"From internationally celebrated director Zhang Yimou (JU DOU, RAISE THE RED LANTERN, HERO, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS) comes a story of love and war. The dangerous streets of Nanjing throw together a group of opposites û a flock of shell-shocked schoolchildren, a dozen seductive courtesans, and a renegade American (Academy Award® winner Christian Bale, THE FIGHTER, THE DARK KNIGHT) posing as a priest to save his own skin, or so he thinks û all seeking safety behind a walled cathedral. Trapped by marauding soldiers, over the next few days the prejudices and divides between them will fall away as they unite around a last-ditch plan to protect the children from impending catastrophe. Nominated for a Golden Globe® (Best Foreign Language Film). Based on the Novel by Yan Geling."In 1937 China, a mortician arrives at a Catholic church in Nanjing to prepare a priest for burial and finds himself the unwilling protector of a group of convent students and prostitutes from the invading Japanese army.
