Escape from Huang Shi 黄石的孩子

I went to watch a movie with parents just now. We decided to watch Escape from Huang Shi 黄石的孩子. Do you guys know the story behind this movie? Let me tell you all about it.

It is a very touching and bravery story, based on a true story! The movie is mainly in English language and mixed with Mandarin.



Based on real events, The Children of Huang Shi is a sweeping but intimate story set against war-torn China in the 1930’s. A young British journalist, George Hogg witnessed the tragedy at China during the war between China and Japan. He tried to bring 60 orphans to a place where no war has been gone through, together with 2 other adults. Together they rescue 60 orphaned children, leading them on an extraordinary journey across hundreds of miles of treacherous terrain, through snow-covered mountains and an unforgiving desert. Along the way they discover the true meaning of love, responsibility and courage.

黄石的孩子, 是一个真实的故事. 它的背景是1930年末饱受战争蹂躏的中国. 电影在真人真事的基础上讲述了一个英国人乔治, 带领60个孤儿踏上不平凡的征程. 他们为了最终到达安全的蒙古沙漠, 走过将近1000英里的险途, 穿越了六盘山的终年冰封. 在这过程中, 他开始明白什么是真正的勇气.

The British journalist, George Hogg (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), witnessed the tragedy. He was nearly killed by Japanese but then he was rescued by Jack Chen (Chow Yun Fat).

George Hogg成为让人恐惧的南京大屠杀的见证人时, 才真正明白战争的涵义.

Later on, he has been asked to go Huang Shi, a place stayed with 60 orphans who lost their beloved parents in the war.

过后他就去了黄石, 战争中的孤儿们躲藏在崎岖而美丽的山脉.

George has no choice but to use his knowledge to protect these kids. In order to do that, he met with a business lady Madame Wang (Michelle Yeoh) in the town, and exchanged resources with her to get the food.

乔治不得不依靠自己的资源想法喂饱和保护这些孩子, 个已经成为零售商的本土女贵族Madame Wang成了他的救命草.


He taught the kids basic skills and English language.

他教了那些孩子基本的知识和英语.


An American nurse, Lee (Radha Mitchell), came to help and aid the kids.

一位年轻护士来帮忙与治疗孩子们.


The orphans who lost the parents and relatives in the war.

那些失去双亲的孤儿.


Although the life was very suffered, but still the kids were strong enough to face the reality.

虽然他们的生活状况很辛苦, 可是他们还是勇敢的生存下去.


A few months later, the army of China retreated to the area nearby of Huang Shi. They requested the kids to be the soldiers and George refused.

过了几个月, 中国军队撤退至黄石, 他们要求那些孩子加入军队, 但George拒绝了.


George has no choice, but have to bring the kids ahead to north, and find a peaceful place. Along the journey, they had to travel 1000 miles with 60 orphans.

没办法, 他带领60位孩子去寻找个安宁的地方. 他们得穿越1000英里.

During the journey, they tried to avoid the Japanese army.

在路程上, 他们得逃避日军的追查.


They managed to escape from the Japanese confrontation.

他们还勉强躲过了与一队日本人面对面的惨剧.


They reached Shan Dan finally, and they built up their home and school again, after 1000miles of journey.

终于, 他们到达了山丹, 一个平静有安宁的地方. 他们在建造新的家园和一所新的学校.

But at the end, George infected with tetanus, and died later on. The kids were sad and built a grave for him.

George过后感染上破伤风而去世了. 孩子们很伤心地为他建立起个纪念墓.

George inspired them and gave them a new life with ambitions and confidence. At Shan Dan today, the people still remembered George Hogg, a person who rescued and brought the kids from Huang Shi to there.

他留给孩子们无限的鼓舞, 给与他们创造新生活的愿望和信心. 今天的山丹, 人们仍清清楚楚地记得乔治, 一个从来没有想过会和黄石的男孩们在一起的年轻的英国人.

This is a very touched story, I really never thought has a real story behind this. I believe confidence, courage and love can help to achieve a very difficult task, and I'm really inspired with this story.

Well you guys, hope you can watch this movie also, and share your ideas with us.

P/S: I obtained the photos from the official website. But I really typed the words by myself. Don't say I'm a copycat ya~ =p.
