Dragon Seed Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 4.0 4.0 from 1 reviews

The lives of the residents of a small Chinese village are turned upside down when the Japanese invade it. Based on the Pearl S. Buck novel. Lengthy and occasionally tedious, though generally well-made with heart-felt attempts to create Oriental characters, without having Asians in the cast.

Dragon Seed

Dr. Nick Stage--PHD

The 1`944 movie, DRAGON SEED, showed the horrible truth about the Japanese. Rape, murder, and looting etc. I am GLAD we "nuked" Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Today, the Japs will not acknowledge the 1937 Rape of Nanking. It's called "cultural amnesia" I admire the movie Dragon Seed.
