Originally scheduled for release during this spring festival, Nanking Nanking's release was postponed until the summer vacation. The film on the Nanking Massacre is directed by young film director Lu Chuan and stars Gao Yuanyuan, Liu Ye and Fan Wei. The film recounts history by telling of the experience of a common Japanese soldier and a Chinese soldier during the Massacre.

Director Lu Chuan said, "After the rough edition, the film was six hours. It's hard to cut among all the clips. But we had to give up some, in order to make it a compact film full of tension and emotion. Now the film has been shortened to about two hours and fifteen minutes. We also made changes to the structure."

The film was sent to the state administration of radio, film and television for the first checkup. But because it involves a real historical event, there were more procedures for the film to be subjected to. But Lu has promised the soul of the film will not be changed.

The director and the production crew aimed to recreate the historic story. They buried themselves into volumes of historical documents, constructed scenes as near as close to the authentic ones as possible, trying make every detail accurate. The film is expected to provide audiences with a heart stopping experience.
