War is hell (again)

My wife and I really enjoyed watching Children of the Silk Road which is based on the true story of Englishman George Hogg's care of orphans during the brutal Second Sino-Japanese war. The scenery is magnificent.

Again it illustrates that War is Hell, the power and practice of sacrificial love, and our search for redemption.

To me an interesting twist occurs when it is revealed that one of the main characters has a drug addiction to cope with the pain and suffering they encounter.

The Times has a fascinating account of the background and how the movie was made.
