Note: The following text may contain spoilers

JOHN RABE is drama based on the true story of a German power plant manager who saved thousands of Chinese people by creating a safe zone during the Japanese 'Rape of Nangking'.

Violence

The aftermath of bloody war violence includes sight of a hospital ward filled with bloodied bodies, as well as sight of a decapitated head following a man's execution.

There is also a scene in which two soldiers attempt to rape and woman but are shot and killed before sexual violence takes place. In another scene, a group of young female students are forced to undress before a Japanese commander searching for a prisoner. The sequence includes nudity, but not in a sexual context.

There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k').
