City of Life and Death (R2/UK BD) in September
High Fliers have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of City of Life and Death on 27th September 2010.
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.
Priced at £15.99 RRP on DVD and £19.99 RRP on Blu-ray, there are no extras.
