Actor Christian Bale has defended his new film "The Flowers of War", which has been accused of being anti-Japanese.



In the film, Bale plays an American who protects a group of Chinese schoolgirls and prostitutes who are trying to escape the Japanese army's brutal sacking of China's wartime capital, Nanjing.

The movie is filled with battle scenes between Chinese and Japanese soldiers and the brutal rape and murder of Chinese women by Japanese troops, reports contactmusic.com.

"It's far more of a movie about human beings and the nature of human beings' responses to crisis and how that can reduce people to the most animalistic behaviour and also raise them up to the most honourable behaviour," Bale told The Guardian.
