Description 1 online resource (streaming video file) (142 minutes) : .flv file, sound
Summary From internationally celebrated director Zhang Yimou comes a story of love and war. The dangerous streets of Nanjing throw together a group of opposites -a flock of shell-shocked school children, a dozen seductive courtesans, and a renegade American posing as a priest to save his own skin, or so he thinks - 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 Best Foreign Language Film at the **Golden Globes.** Nominated for six awards and Winner of the Best Newcomer Award at the **Asian Film Awards.** *"Bale is forthright and emotional in the role." - Peter Bradshaw, **The Guardian***
