Introduction
To date, World War II was the world’s worst event in human history. Colonisation is one of the reasons as to why World War II was the most horrific. Many Asian nations such as Korea, Vietnam and the part of China and so on were colonised by the European powers and Japan during World War II. And it had been raging for more than four years. Although several Asian nations were decolonised by the European powers and Japan after World War II, the wounds of the war were too serious; millions of people died and women raped and killed. Survived people still have suffered permanent injury from disease, psychological trauma of the war and social ostracism. Now, today’s Asian cinemas have been portrayed as traumatic memories of military terror to remind the history. This essay shed light on the significance of trauma in both films; The Flowers of War and The White Silk Dress in connection with the history of Korea.
The Flowers of War
In 1937, Nanking (today more commonly called Nanjing) Massacre was enforced for 6 weeks by Japanese troops. Millions of Chinese people cruelly died regardless of age or sex. It is also called as The Rape of Nanking, because the Japanese troops raped and killed a great number of Chinese women (Chambers 2010). The Chinese movie, the Flowers of War shows the bald historical fact of Nanjing Massacre in 1937. It is a remake of the Chinese novella, 13 Flowers of Nanjing.
Then China’s Nationalist party developed friendly relations with the Nazi Germany in order to be provided military assistance (Hiromichi 2008). As a result, the Chinese military’s equipments such as weapons, helmets, uniforms and boots were the same as the Nazi had which were well defined in the movie. With German equipments and tactics, Chinese military invaded Shanghai in August 1937 and resisted the Japanese military which marched towards Nanjing (Hiromichi 2008). To break through the Chinese military’s line, the Japanese military scorched earth policy and massacre innocent people. After the capture of Nanjing, the Japanese killed many Chinese men and raped Chinese women under the pretext of hunting sheep-dipped Chinese soldiers out.
John Miller was a mortician who was an obnoxious drinker and crazed about money. In a word, he was such a good-for-nothing type of man. However, he turned into a brave and responsible man after he dressed up like a priest and shaved his messy beard with Father Ingleman’s shaving kit. Therefore, priest’s uniform and the shaving kit can be described as a metonym, symbolism and motivation that why he decided to be from a good-for-nothing type of man to hero. In the middle of the film, Colonel Haesegawa apologised to John and the students at the convent for invading the Catholic Church and he gave them some food and played the Japanese folk song, My Home with organ, also he ordered a platoon to guard the Church for their security. Although Colonel Haesegawa seemed to be a man of culture, actually he was intended to lock up the students until the celebration of Nanjing’s occupation. Therefore, the film shows the characteristics of Japanese who are antilogous and deceitful. Moreover, we could also recognise the brutality of the Japanese military. In the film, Dou snuck out to get pipa strings with Lan and she wanted to play the pipa for Pu Sheng, who had a hard life and had nothing. But one string was not enough to play, so she did it for him. Unfortunately, they were caught by a Japanese platoon and Lan was shot to death and the platoon raped Dou and killed her eventually. The most brutal part was that although Lan was shot to death, the platoon ripped up her clothes and put a wooden stick into her crotch which was the most atrocious acts and disrespectful to the person who died. Not only in the film, but also in reality, they committed these kinds of atrocious acts to the Chinese (Picture 1). The book, Lest We Forget: Nanjing Massacre, 1937’ by Zhigeng (1995) said, “Many Chinese women refugees cut off their long hair and some even shaved their heads and wrapped them in coarse blue cloth. To hide their feminine figures they put on baggy cotton-padded long black gowns. All these efforts had only one purpose – to protect themselves from the ravages of Japanese troops” (Picture 2).
In the Flowers of War, there are three main metonyms which could be described as the relationship of the Korean history. First of all, blood-soaked pipa strings might be the symbol of not only just the Chinese women who suffered from the Japanese’s sexual urges and brutality but also all Asian women who were forced into prostitution for the Japanese army during the World War II. In fact, most estimates of the number of these “comfort women” range from approximately 50,000 to 200,000. A majority of them were Korean women and followed by Chinese, Taiwanese, Filipino, Dutch, and Indonesian women made up most of the rest (Niksch 2007). Second of all, a broken piece of glass could be interpreted as the resolute determination and patriotism of 13 prostitutes which is reminiscent of Non-Gae in Korea. During the Japanese invasion of Joseon in 1593, Non-Gae lured a Japanese general to a cliff and threw herself into the Nam River below while holding the general tight in her arms, causing both of them to drown (Jinju City 2009). Furthermore, Major Li and his platoon did not have adequate weapons to destroy the Japanese’s tanks, so they threw themselves with a bunch of grenades at the tanks to stop it. And, they wetted their heavy clothes and used them as body armours because they needed to approach the tanks to destroy it. These could be considered as the resolute determination and patriotism as well. They are also reminiscent of many Korean independence activists. Both have laid down their lives for their countries.
The film consisted of three different languages; English, Chinese, and Japanese to maximise its realism. Also, slow motion technique had been used when anyone got shot. The filmmakers might have intended to show its intensity but the technique was overused in the entire movie which made the audience annoyed. Another interesting technique was voice-over narration. One of the young students called, Shu provided perspective via voice-over narration which helped the audience to understand the story much more easily.
The White Silk Dress
During the World War II, Vietnam was governed by the France military (Le 2011). The White Silk Dress was set in this period. In the film, there was a scene of attack Governor’s house by the Viet Minh organisation which showed very unsettled society of Vietnam in this time. The Viet Minh organisation was set up and was led by communist Ho Chi Minh from 1946 (Le 2011). Gu was one of the Governor’s servants who managed to escape with his lover Dan from the Viet Minh’s attack and they evacuated to the South to avoid it. Shortly afterwards, they met a small group of French army. While they were hiding in a bunch of corpses, the French army looked at the bunch of corpses and said “The Viet Minh want freedom and this is what they got.” This scene can be described as the relationship of the Japanese occupation period in Korea which was a time of tribulation for Korea. And many patriots joined in the independence movement to the death against Japanese imperialism. And the Governor could be defined as one of the pro-French collaborators like pro-Japanese groups in Korea. Although Gu and Dan started a family, the country was devastated by constant warfare and the people were becoming exhausted. They used to eat porridge rice instead of rice and Gu thought he was not just cut out for paternity. He sublimated his sorriness for the family into a mournful piece of music. So the musical instrument, called Dan Nui was the only way to express his feeling in difficult times. One of the daughters dressed up as Charlie Chaplin for their parents to laugh which can be interpreted as not only the symbol of peace but also the definition of time period. In fact, according to Charlie Chaplin’s biography, he was awarded World Peace Council Prize in 1954. In the middle of the film, Dan was captured by some polices in the late night and questioned which parties she was working for. While being questioned by the police, she was brutally assaulted several times. This was reminiscent of the Korean Central Intelligence Agency (KCIA) in the past which abused their powers to many innocent Koreans at that time.
There are some metonyms that led for the audience to believe that the family of Gu and Dan were in the middle of the war. First of all, Gu and his daughter took fish in a net and they took a grenade which is one of typical symbols of war. Second of all, the film was applied to the sound of a roar of guns in several scenes. Furthermore, a military helicopter and bombardment of school can be described as the relationship of the war.
The White Silk Dress had such impressive techniques which were able to portray the Vietnam War at a very high level. It is the first Vietnamese movie to use the ‘flying-camera’ technique which is able to show its grand scale to the audience. Moreover, the filmmakers hired hundreds of extras in order to create the line of evacuees fleeing which was a realistic description. The most interesting technique was that the filmmakers put red screen with a roar of guns at the end of the movie which emphasised that a war is the most barbarous thing. It also showed how bad the Vietnam War was by citation of the real Vietnam War resources alternately (Picture 3).
Conclusion
All of colonisation, imperialism and massacre are the outgrowths of World War II, and consequently millions of innocent people had to die due to the war and survivors have been psychologically traumatized until now. The war turned the countries, families, friends and almost everything into ruins. Although the colonialist’s conduct was inexcusable Germany has apologised about starting World War II and has purged their faults with adequate monetary compensations. However, Japan reluctantly purged their faults with preposterous monetary compensations and they even refuse to express regret for past wrongdoings. Also, all the war victims including bereaved families, comfort women and dead colonists demand a sincere apology from the Japanese government first, before making full monetary compensations. To receive an apology from Japan, many people protest against Japan over the history and film is one of the effective methods to achieve it. Although both films have different characteristics and portray different topics, those absolutely show the wounds of the war and share their loss of everything in their societies. Mother Teresa said, “In the short term, there may be winners and losers in the war that we all dread. But that never can, nor never will justify the suffering, pain and loss of life your weapons will cause.”

Flower Power

...Flower Power On October 21, 1967, a large demonstration took place at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington. As many as 100,000 demonstrators attended the event, and at least 30,000 later marched to the Pentagon for another rally and an all night vigil. The civil disobedience on the steps of the Pentagon was interrupted by clashes with soldiers and police. In all, 647 arrests were made. A plot to airdrop 10,000 flowers on the Pentagon was foiled by undercover agents. After the airdrop was halted the flowers intended for the airdrop were placed in the barrels of officer’s rifles resulting in the iconic images from the “flower power” movement. The slogan “flower power”, coined by poet Allen Ginsberg in 1965, was used by the American counter-culture resistance as a symbolic action of protest against the Vietnam War. A surge of peaceful demonstration protesters were handed masses of flowers to offer policemen, press, and politicians as retaliation and defiance against the war. The flowers served two purposes: one as symbols of passive resistance of non-violence and secondly as emblems to reduce negative energy and connotations associated with feelings of fear, anger, threats, prosecution - all which were frequent results of these anti-war demonstrations. Photographs of flower-wielding protesters at the Pentagon March became seminal images of the 1960s anti-war protests. The image I chose to analyze is a photo by French photojournalist Marc Riboud of a seventeen-year-old......

The Last Spring

...The last spring I remember once I had someone very dear to me, someone that left deep traces in my life, someone that would live in my heart forever, someone that I will never forget. In order to preserve the memory of this angel, a divine human creature, I devote this story to my friend because her innocence and her fragility has been inspiring me for years. I hope that many people will understand the hidden message once they've read the story. It was a wonderful spring dawning. The air was poisoned with nothing else but the strong smell of the spring flowers and the joy of the birds' songs. We were holding our hands and happily as happy can two little girls be, we were bouncing and jumping in the park. Spring could be seen in our eyes, sunshine could be recognized in our smile. It seemed to us like we were flying in the air as two colourful butterflies from a flower to a flower, each of them more and more beautiful, each of them more and more attracting, as if they were the last days of our lives and each of them was more and more challenging. Smiling faces everywhere, people could envy our happy childhood reflected in the deepness of our sight. We were so excited in those spring rainbows above our heads without knowing that this would be our last spring together, remembered afterwards as the coldest one and the darkest one in my life. It's funny how Marta and I met at a beach resort. We could never imagine that we were going to be inseparable friends.......

Maggy

...Who Will Help Maggy? MAGGY was painted by Harvey Dinnerstein in 1985. Coincidently, that was the same year I joined the Army. Initially the painting appeared to be just a simple and unassuming portrait. Except for the flowers, there was not much color and it was rather muted and mostly dark. There was no real background to speak of, just a single vanishing line that merely allowed the viewer to differentiate between the floor and the blank wall behind her. In short, it was merely a life-size portrait of a lone woman standing, while holding an oversized bag that had a small bunch of flowers peeking out. This was all I saw as I passed by the painting, until I looked at her face. It was her face that made me stop. I had not planned on stopping; after all I had already found the painting I wanted to write about, The Rail Splitter. That one was a subtle yet powerful portrait of a beloved President and it would be easy enough to write about. All I was doing now was simply ruling out all the other paintings. That was until I saw her face. It wasn’t a particularly pretty face, not to say she was homely by any means, but more so to say it was not any physical attribute or attractiveness that caught my eye. Her face had a hauntingly hollow expression that was all too familiar, and although strong and lean, it had such an incredible heaviness to it. It seemed even holding it up had become beyond her ability anymore. It just seemed to hang down and list to her left. In...

Religious Rituals

...Christina Kirchner English 10 November 18, 2015 Religious Rituals In his sonnet Anthem for Doomed Youth, Wilfred Owen criticizes war. His tone is first bitter, angry and ironic. It is filled with intense sadness and an endless feeling of emptiness. Owen strongly uses imagery and sound to convey his idea of war. Throughout the poem, he uses an extended metaphor to contrast a funeral at war to a traditional funeral at home. Owen opens the poem with images of death on a battlefield. He jolts the image of a slaughterhouse and the men “who die as cattle.” He displays the image of the way men are treated like “cattle,” being slaughtered. The vast number of soldiers dying emphasizes the absence of bells rung: “What passing-bells for these who die as cattle?” Instead of pleasant church bells, “the monstrous anger of the guns” and “the stuttering rifles” marks the deaths of the soldiers. Owen turns his poem into a mockery of a religious funeral service. He states the absence of a traditional funeral with prayers and bells for the dead soldiers. The prayers and bells are thought to glorify the deaths of the soldiers and that fighting is noble and purposeful. The “hasty orisons” are irreverence. Instead of sounds of a choir’s holy songs, Owen hears the sound of chaos and the explosions of bombs. He is drawn to another sound of mourning when the sounds of the bugles call to mind the remaining towns with half their men killed: No mockeries now for them; no......

Golden Hall at Chusonji

...The Konjikido at Chusonji was a jewel in the countryside of Japan. Completed in 1126 by the Fujiwara family, its function was not only as a funeral chapel for the three generations of male leaders of the Fuijwara, but also to aid the fallen soldiers of the recent civil wars to “achieve rebirth in Amida’s Pure Land.” 1 Fujiwara No Kiyohira emerged from the civil wars victorious, determined to found a new capitol for the provinces of the north, located in Hiraizumi in the Iwate province. In the construction of the new capitol and its temples, his intentions seem clear: he wanted the splendor and opulence of his newly founded capitol to rival that of the imperial city, Kyoto. It is possible he was trying to prove himself and his family to the Kyoto rulers and this is what led to the magnificence of Chusonji. The low regard the aristocracy felt toward the northern Fujiwara is shown in several stories.2 After establishing the capital, Kiyohira was appointed to command six additional outlying districts, which further consolidated his power and authority.3 This allowed him access to local gold mines, natural resources, and land which could be used to build Chusonji. During this time, Kyoto was changing. The insei government had taken hold, starting a period in which aristocrats that were members of the Pure Land sect of Buddhism funded many temples. This was probably an influence when Kiyohira was planning the complex at Chusonji. 4 One of forty original buildings, and......

Chanel No.5

...good luck. She released this perfume on the 5th day of the 5th month and it's main sent is May rose and jasmine. Coco's famous quote on Chanel No.5 is “what is very important in a fragrance, is that the fragrance has some kind of mystery” The Chanel No.5 journey starts of in the fields of May roses at the Mul family's generations-old flower farm, in Pégomas, France. The weather is perfect for growing and picking roses: fresh and not too warm. Every single rose that goes into each bottle of No. 5 parfum is harvested by hand right there. A 30mL bottle of No. 5 parfum contains 1,000 jasmine flowers and 12 May roses - all from this same field. On average, it takes an hour and 20 minutes for a flower to go from being plucked in the field to being processed in the factory. Workers gently place the roses in the pockets of their aprons and transfer them into big burlap sacks; once these sacks are full, they’re loaded onto flatbed trailers and pulled by tractor back to the plant. Jean-Francois Vieille, a cousin of Joseph Mul’s, oversees operations at the prettily landscaped Sotraflor plant, which lies just down the road from where the flowers are grown. Workers empty the burlap sacks from the field onto metal trays in a massive cylindrical vat called an extractor; once the stacked trays contain approximately 250 kilos of May roses, the vat is shut and the blooms are treated with 2,000 litres of hexane solvent in a series of three “washings.” After six hours, the waxy...

...customers who value fresh and long-lasting flowers for decorative purposes. Our key impediment is cost effectively identifying and reaching our targeted customers. The solution is to: (1) correctly identify Calyx’s optimal target segment and (2) develop a marketing mix that effectively and efficiently reaches this segment. To reach this segment, Calyx should advertise through print media outlets whose readership values Calyx’s unique offering, namely flower longevity and freshness, and continue to pursue in-store promotion opportunities with select home décor retailers and upscale department stores. Problem Analysis Segmenting the market by looking solely at the demographic and geographic characteristics of its existing customers has led Calyx to believe that it can expand its customer base by simply sending catalogs to individuals who share similar demographic profiles. However, the large discrepancy in yields between current customers and those who were obtained from rented mailing lists (Exhibit 2), highlights the fact that Calyx is not effectively reaching the customer segment that most values its services and is unprofitable due to excessive catalog spend. In order to guide the process of identifying Calyx’s target segment and proposing alternative methods to reach this segment, we have constructed the following positioning statement: To those who value flowers for decorative purposes, Calyx is the distributor of flowers and plants that are fresh and long......

The Waste Land

...The Waste land of T.S.Eliot is considered as a full of imagery poet composed after world war. The poet is divided into five sections but through section 1: the burial of the dead, readers could realize fully about imagery and the role of speakers. In the first section, Eliot conveyed pictures from views of different speakers which are riddled from gothic imagery. This part of The Waste Land can be seen as a modified dramatic monologue. The four speakers in this part are frantic in their need to speak, to find an audience, but they find themselves surrounded by dead people and thwarted by outside circumstances, like wars. Because the parts are so short and the situations so confusing, the effect is not one of an overwhelming impression of a single character; instead, the reader is left with the feeling of being trapped in a crowd, unable to find a familiar face. It is made up of four vignettes, each seemingly from the perspective of different speakers. The first is an autobiographical snippet from the childhood of an aristocratic woman, in which she recalls sledding and claims that she is German, not Russian. The woman mixes a meditation on the seasons with remarks on the barren state of her current existence ("I read, much of the night, and go south in the winter"). The second is a prophetic, apocalyptic invitation to journey into a desert waste where the speaker will show the reader "something different from either / Your shadow at morning striding behind......

In 1940 the colossus was completed by Tommy Flowers and was used in War World two to be a code breaker which helped us win the war. In 1950 -1960 computer mainframes were installed in school, business and government. In 1976 the Internet was made to transfer data. Then in 1982 IBM made the first personal computer with the help of Intel which made the central processing unit (CPU) and Microsoft which give them operating system (OS) then later on gave them Disk Operating System (DOS). In 1989 the world wide web was launched which allowed people to view documents. Charles Babbage was the first person to design the programmable computer which has led us to more complex computer designs. Thanks to Charles Babbage we now have the information, design and modern computers. Babbage's machines were among the first mechanical computers, although they were not actually completed, largely because of funding problems and personality issues. The data and program memory were separated, operation was instruction-based, the control unit could make conditional jumps, and the machine had a separate Input Output unit (I/O).
