In the unrelentingly "Back to 1942," the Chinese director Feng Xiaogang uses the classic epic format to explore what happened when war met famine in the Henan Province of China in 1942, a disaster that cost millions of lives. Cruelty abounds as thousands flee Henan, even as invading Japanese troops are encroaching. The Chinese Army is part of the problem: It demands what little grain there is for its troops.
