Genre: Action, Drama, History
Director(s): Dong Shen
131 min

Li River runs clear, the Yuan river is long.

Changde is a great place.

The rice wine of Taoyuan,

the lollies from Zoushi.

The lollies from Zoushi.

Hefu's long fried fritters.

Shuixi's massive tofu.

Once at Deshan, turned around.

Felt the lotus-filled buns.

But I thought had a return ticket.

Can't return to the village,

Can't see mother and father.

Can't return to the village,

Can't see mother and father.

Tears welling up in my eyes.


You see what time is!?

You still haven't packed!?


Captain Feng.

Wanqing's singing is gets interesting

the more she sings.

You've married,

yet I did not hear about it.

Originally, we were going to hold

the marriage ceremonies tomorrow.

But we didn't want to alert the devils.

We were afraid we wouldn't be

able to get married.

There is always a way.

Wait until the Japanese devils are expelled.

I will give you two an

immense and grand wedding.

This is the jade tiger pendant

my wife gave me.

I'll give this to you as a wedding present.

We can't accept this, Lieutenant.

Your wife gave it to you as

a protective talisman.

Take it.

Lieutenant Yu.

How about I just help you hold it

for a time.


You people also retreat.

Leave command of the Huben to us.

You can rest easy.

During the May Battle of West Hebei,

Changde was given a false alarm.

I'm not fleeing anymore.

I want to stay here with Baohua.


Lieutenant, Lake Tujia has opened fire.

To Deshan.

According to the war zones

the Commander determined...

Yokoyama Isamu's main force is

at our borders.

Their troops filed along the Yangtze,

their target is clear...

To eliminate the troops

in the Huadong area.

The first wave...

Will retaliate for the war at West Hebei...

By leading a feint at Changde.

Staff Chief Can!

Something big has happened, Staff Chief Can!




We can't retreat!

Retreat is desertion!

We are here to relieve the 57th Division!

Who'd have thought Yu Chengwan

is eager to die!

Those killed by the devils were

our brothers in the 188th Platoon!

They were 57th Division!

Bullshit! Then we can't retreat!

Can't retreat!

What the hell!?

- Tie him up for me!

- Let me go!


Let me go!



I'll shoot you.

As men of China,

how can you have such weak knees?

Get up.

Get up!

Our enemies are before me,

I won't kill you.

I'll give you the opportunity

to redeem yourself.

Thank you for your grace, Lieutenant.

Deshan is Changde's defence.

Fail to hold Deshan...

And Changde will be wide open.

Call the brothers to arms.

Sis! Sis!



Sis, help me sew this on.

Come in quick.

Sis, you must quickly get away from here.

The little devils are almost here.

I promised Boss Wei I'd watch the store.

Now isn't the time.

Everyone's gone already.

And here you are valuing money over your life.

It's no concern.

Just ten to fifteen more days,

without a sweat...

When that day comes, Sis's dowry

will be earned back in full.


Don't move.

Quickly get away from here.


Find out the situation.

Report back to me any time.



Is our Huben insignia a joke to you?

Give it back!

Give it back!

Back off!

Give it back!

Give it back!

Give it back!



I've begged you.

You always leave me behind.

I'll tell you Miao crybaby.

I'm not a crybaby!

I am a Huben soldier.

My name is Huang Erhu.

I want to join you men in fighting the devils.

You're quite loud.

Do you know what Huben means?

Of course I know.

Huben, right?

Is all about fighting.

Like mighty tigers to a flock of sheep.

Good answer.

Since you're so eager to fight the devils...

Can you fire a gun?

Use this one.


You're a soldier, I want you.


Yokoyama Isamu.

Born 1886 on Japan's north-east,

Fukushima prefecture.

Appointed Marshal of the 11th regiment

of the Japanese army within a year.

His first battle was the

May Battle of West Hebei.

At the time, troop morale was low.

He suffered heavy losses.

He has always wanted revenge.

We only know this much?

Affirmative, Lieutenant.

Yu Chengwan, 41 years old.

From Guangdong's Taishan.

Student at Huangpu for a time.

Promoted to Major at age 33.

Last month promoted again to Lieutenant.

Graduated from Fanyu's local institute,

Zhongshan University.

Then entered military college

as a postgraduate.

All-round military man.


If Divisions 3 and 13 push for

Changde together...

The Imperial Army will quickly raze Changde.

Continue the north-east advance,

towards Chongqing.

So far...

Our little covert operation

has not been found out.

The Chinese army still thinks

we want to attack Hebei.

Sir, the Captain calls for you.

My buffalo!

Give me back my buffalo!

My buffalo!

Give me back my buffalo!

Rice, taste this.

Changde is the land of plenty.

To the rear of the Chinese army.

Yokoyama's strategy is indeed cunning.

Using the element of surprise.

But he is overly prudent.

I fear he might hinder our war machine.

With you around, it shouldn't be an issue.

Captain, you called for me?

Out drawing again?


Captain Itou

Once this war is over...

You can hold an arts exhibition in Tokyo.


Changde is too beautiful.

I've heard that the Utopia poet

Tao Yuanming speaks of is right here


The landscape is indeed beautiful.

Occupy Changde.

Then we'll all play in this Utopia.


Sister Wanqing, time to leave.

Where's your luggage?

I'm not leaving.

I want to stay here with Baohua.

Come with us and leave.

Don't worry,

I've already made the arrangements.

You guys get past the city walls quickly.

Go now.

Go now, go now.

Leave already.

Take care, Sister Wanqing.

It seems his forces are moving

and so are ours.

Headed towards West Hebei,

instead of attacking Changde.

Yokoyama Isamu has changed tactics,

his main forces will attack Changde.

Our eight-thousand against his

thirty-thousand strong.

You tell me, what can we do?


Defending downhill...

Shouldn't be a problem, right?

It shouldnt...

Although, notify Deng Xianfeng

to double his efforts at Deshan.



Over here.


Report, Major!

Colonel Deng! Colonel Deng, he...

Speak quickly! What has happened!?

He has taken his command and fled!

That bastard!




I am Yu Chengwan.

Lieutenant Yu!

The devils headed for Deshan have arrived!


There are about one hundred of us still here!

The rest have fled.

The devils are hanging us to dry!

Lieutenant Yu.

Lieutenant Yu!

We haven't failed you, have we?

We remaining hundred have not failed China!

Major Zhao.

You have done well.

You have all done well.

Don't worry!

Get your breathing in order and

resume fighting.

Get down!

Get down!

Get ready!



Get the one carrying the sword!

Nurse! nurse!




My leg!

Where is my hand, Doctor!?

Apologies, apologies.

Wanqing, hurry get out here and help.

Where is my leg!?
