‘The Flowers of War’ Movie Trailer and Photos with Christian Bale
The Flowers of War stars Christian Bale, Ni Ni and is directed by Zhang Yimou.
Synopsis: Director Zhang Yimou (Raise the Red Lantern, Ju Dou, Hero, House of the Flying Daggers) tells an epic story of love and sacrifice in THE FLOWERS OF WAR, starring Christian Bale and introducing Ni Ni. The film, set during Japan’s 1937 invasion of China, is told from a young girl’s point of view, not as a history lesson, but as an intimate, elemental and paradoxically universal celebration of the human spirit. Bale stars as a dissolute Westerner who seeks refuge in a Catholic church. There he meets a beautiful Chinese courtesan who helps him rescue a group of schoolgirls from a terrible fate at the hands of the Japanese.
The movie will be released to theaters in Late winter 2012. You can find all our coverage of The Flowers of War here.
