Shanghai Ghetto

Shanghai Ghetto

SHANGHAI GHETTO recalls the strange-but-true story of thousands of European Jews who were shut out of country after country while trying to escape Nazi persecution in the late 1930s. Left without options or entrance visas, a beacon of hope materialized for them on the other side of the world, and in the unlikeliest of places, Japanese-controlled Shanghai. Fleeing for their lives, these Jewish refugees journeyed to form a settlement in the exotic city, penniless and unprepared for their new life in the Far East. At the turn of the new millennium, filmmakers Dana Janklowicz-Mann and Amire Mann boldly snuck into China with two survivors and a digital camera to shoot at the site of the original Shanghai Ghetto, unchanged since WWII.

Mitch T (mx) wrote: As good and as honest as any Christian film I've ever seen! Mia and I absolutely loved it!

Sunil J (ru) wrote: I can tell by the trailer that the main guy is a douche to the point of me never being able to like him. The story is a bit uninspired and storywise, i really hope this guy doesn't get the girl.

Tanner A (fr) wrote: The most wonderful thing about this documentary is the unadulterated honesty. It has no agenda. It has no outstanding message. It simply sets out to accurately chronicle the stories of several boys entering the military. As heart warming as it is heartbreaking. A must see, especially for anyone with any relation to the military.

Luciano G (gb) wrote: A slow paced movie of more than two hours, has some 15-20 minutes of solid fight scenes, but between them, everything else is annoying.....Red Eagle is far, far from the afore mentioned best action movie that came out from Thailand....

Akhil A (ag) wrote: It surely says a lot shows a lot,but still mixes up ,jumbled up at times.exaggerated a bit too much ,i believe.....!!! but still manages to give that touch ,especially those flashbacks and resemblance from the previous movie"in the mood for love.."
