Sons of Good Earth (1965)
Reviewed by: STSH on 2010-10-25
Summary: Grand sweeping epic with a personal feel
I endorse everything the first two reviewers have said, and certainly recommend this grand film. One of the plot holes is worthy of mention, as it is gaping. The story proper starts in 1937 with the Rape Of Nanking, which of course stirs the patriots into action. Only a little time seems to pass from the intense personal worries of the leading couple to the war action, and just a little more until the denouement. Yet, suddenly near the end of the film, it is 1945 and the Japanese are surrendering. This is a mighty jolt and a sad blot on an otherwise excellent production.
