Product Description

Produced by John Woo, In the mountains of Taiwan, two races clashed in defense of their faiths. One believed in rainbows, the other believed in the sun. Neither side realized they both believed in the same sky. Wei Te-Sheng's epic film WARRIORS OF THE RAINBOW: SEEDIQ BALE retells an extraordinary episode from 20th-century history which is little-known, even in Taiwan. Between 1895 and 1945, a Japanese colony inhabited the island and subdued the aboriginal tribes who first settled the land. Seediq leader Mouna Rudo (Lin Ching-Tai) forged a coalition with other tribal leaders and plotted a rebellion against their Japanese colonial masters. The initial uprising took the Japanese by surprise, but they soon sent in their army to crush the rebellion, using aircraft and poison gas. The most expensive Taiwanese film ever made, WARRIORS OF THE RAINBOW: SEEDIQ BALE is written and directed by Wei Te-Sheng, whose romantic comedy CAPE NO. 7 received numerous awards and accolades.

Currently the most expensive film made in Taiwan at the time of writing, this movie is a historical masterpiece depicting the Wushe Incident/Rebellion when Taiwan was under Japanese rule. It follows most of the history when Japanese colonist were abusing and killing the innocent Native tribes of Taiwan, the elders quickly understood they must make a stand to preserve their people and their culture. Thought like all historical films, most of the original events have been changed a little for the sake of dramatization and pacing. I will guarantee one thing though. They followed to details of the war with many beheadings and suicides of the time and wartime atrocities like using chemical warfare.

Painful rendering of the history of the aboriginal vs. Japanese take over of Taiwan.

Well worth the time to watch it. Brutal in every respect.

The movie storyline should be put apart. The item match the description and there's no damage or what so ever.
