A trailer has been released today for a great looking World War II drama called John Rabe. I haven't heard of this movie until today, but it looks like it gonna be strong movie, with a great story. The movie stars a German actor named Ulrich Tukur (The White Ribbon) stars as John Rabe, Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds), Steve Buscemi, Anne Consigny, Jingchu Zhang, and Teruyuki Kagawa.
Based on a true story, John Rabe tells the story of a German businessman who rescued more than 200,000 civilians during the so—called Nanking Massacre in China. Drawing from John Rabes 1937 diaries as source material, Academy Award ® Winner Florian Gallenberger has crafted a portrait of a man revered as a saint in China to this day and yet never rewarded for his courage during his lifetime.
The film won a good amount of awards at the German Film Awards which incuded Outstanding Feature Film, Best Costume Design, Best Production Design and Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role. The movie will be released in theater on May 21st in New York and Los Angeles. check out the trailer below!
