Ver Twenty Two

An estimated 200,000 Chinese women were forced into prostitution by the Japanese army during WWII. Only 22 of them remain today to speak out publicly. This documentary is not a film for political gains or narrow nationalistic purposes. For the director and the crew, each and every one of those elderly women is a brave and strong individual with similar yet distinctive experiences. This is a group that deserves to be known and correctly understood by more people and a history worth being preserved in a most accurate yet sensitive way. In the documentary, the current situation of those 22 elderly women will be presented in an impersonal way. There's no interrogation, sympathy, nor exaggeration in our film. You will hear them talk about their own experiences, and you will also learn about their perspectives on life, sufferings and happiness. Now all over 80 or 90 years old, those elderly ladies are at the very last stage of their life. This is probably the last chance for the public to actually see their situations and hear their own words while they are still alive. It should not be a history just written on pages.

The title might mislead some viewers as this documentary is not about the suffering of the victims of the Rwanda genocide but the "comfort women". It is the only film made by the Association of International Women's Day and follows the life and activities of the three ladies. They are Julienne Burghardt, Sara Eiger and Thiul Haenga. They were women who served Japanese soldiers in the World War II. And they were quite young when this war started in August 1944. They were members of the Japanese army and they were told to serve Japanese soldiers in the occupied territories. They were coerced and trained in the Japanese military, forced to pay 10,000 Japanese yen each to become "comfort women". The film covers the women's life during the war and their struggle to escape the horrors and brutality of the Japanese army. It does not focus on the personal life of the women but the struggle for their freedom. It also shows the Japanese government's efforts to abolish the Japanese military and the Japanese people's resistance. It also focuses on the struggle to the Japanese government to stop paying the women. It also shows how the women tried to find a solution to their problems. It also shows how the Japanese people's resistance and the Japanese government's efforts to abolish the Japanese military helped to prevent the massacre of women. The film shows the struggle of the Japanese people to gain their freedom. The film is powerful and informative. I recommend it highly. I give it a 10/10.

Steve Toub is a wonderful voice, and his powerful voice has once again been used in a powerful and revealing way. In the past, he has been interviewed by many critics and TV reporters, and their interpretations of his voice and how it is used, is often presented as if they were not the actual voices, but simply his interpretation of the way he heard himself speaking. However, his voice is often not heard in his actual recording, and his interpretation is often used as if it were the actual voices of the people interviewed. He does not distort his voice, but rather the way that he hears himself speaking, which is not necessarily what he actually hears. This film, while presenting all the sources of information, including interviews with some of the people who actually heard him speak, and listened to the recordings, does not present the voice of the people who actually heard Steve Toub speaking, and it is not in fact the voice of the men who actually spoke with him, but rather the voice of his "voice." Steve Toub, as an actual man, is shown as a man who was a talented and creative person, who had a lot of passion, and also had a lot of compassion for other people. Steve Toub was portrayed as an extremely talented man, a musician, and even an artist, but as a person, he was not as well loved as he deserved to be. This film does not present his voice as if it was his actual voice, but rather as the voice of a voice who he heard speaking. Steve Toub spoke with an authenticity and honesty that was rarely seen, and it was almost always presented in a way that the person heard speaking, heard the voice of the actual person who spoke. Steve Toub has revealed to us how he was able to share his talents with the people he worked with, and how he became a voice in many of the media he was listening to, as well as many other people he worked with. This film should be viewed by everyone who loves music, to see how musicians like Toub have turned music into a powerful tool that can be used to express any of the various emotions that exist in the human mind. Steve Toub is a very brave man, and many people should be very proud of him for his honesty. Steve Toub's honesty has caused many people to come forward and speak up about the very shocking things that Steve Toub did. Steve Toub deserves to be honored for the courage he showed in revealing how he was able to share his talents to others.

I had never heard of this film before but have enjoyed Michael Moore documentaries in the past and was intrigued by the central question that the film attempted to answer: "What will we do if we are not treated as human beings and be given respect?" The film took a wide variety of viewpoints from people of all ages and political persuasions and explored the emotional and political ramifications of that question. It was a difficult watch for me, at least I had read the lead-in summary, but I couldn't help but feel the same way as the people I was speaking to during the Q&A session. People of all ages and political persuasions, both Democrats and Republicans, from all walks of life, spoke about the horrors of the U.S. government and its use of illegal drugs. The great majority of the film was dedicated to the impact that the war on drugs had on the people of that country. The effects were dire, the people suffering were not only lost to their country, but to their families and to their country as well. But the effects were a failure to address the real problem - the failure to treat people as human beings and stop the abuse of the drug issue. The U.S. government was more concerned with the big picture and the legacy of Vietnam than it was with the human and societal damage caused by drug use. The film addresses the issue of drug abuse in two different ways. The first is through interviews with addicts, survivors, and those who seek treatment. The second is a fascinating look at the many ways that the government uses and abuses the drug issue to exploit people and profit from the drugs that people are taking to control their lives. The film is not for everyone. While the film explores the issue of drug use and abuse from many different angles, the main point of view is in the minority. I don't think that the main purpose of the film is to debate the legality of drug use. I don't think that's the point. The point of the film is to discuss the issue of how our government has ignored the potential for disaster caused by the use of the drug issue. If you do not want to see the film, you will not like the film. I found it difficult to watch as I would be angry with the government and the people in the film and feel that they were not being treated as human beings. But if you have a chance to see the film, I recommend it. It's a wonderful film that I recommend to people regardless of political persuasion.
