No is a 2012 Chilean drama film directed by Pablo Larraín. The film is based on the unpublished play El Plebiscito, written by Antonio Skármeta. Mexican actor Gael García Bernal plays René, an in-demand advertising man working in Chile in the late 1... 980s. The historical moment the film captures is when advertising tactics came to be widely used in political campaigns. The campaign in question was the historic 1988 plebiscite of the Chilean citizenry over whether dictator Augusto Pinochet should stay in power for another eight years.At the 85th Academy Awards the film was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar   more

Why choose now to start hating on anime?

Why are people even so obsessed with it?

What has anime got to do with anything?

It's possible that the Xia dynasty existed, but there isn't much evidence and what evidence there is is pretty shaky. If the dynasty existed, then the stories about them are widely exaggerated.

@Gustav: Stories about all dynasties are widely exaggerated; there's just fewer mythological elements in more recent dynasties. History is, after all, written by the victors. Anyhow, considering the sheer amount of literature surrounding the Xia Dynasty, I cannot bring myself to believe that none of that never happened (nor Tang or Yao, for that matter). Yellow Emperor might be a bit more mythological, though.
