The stars like an ocean in the sky

Filled with love

Knowing the way even in the dark

Chasing wild imagination

The starlit sky gives birth to sunlight

The horizon of the sky and ocean of love

The absence of walls between hearts

The dreams and ideals of all people


The heart, the city

The breaths of stars in the sky

Over the paradise of dream

Life loves light

The yearn at moonrise

Through the thick clouds

Hope brings strength

HuaBiao Awards Winners

Woo, Ziyi honored at Huabiao Awards
State-sponsored awards  

By CLIFFORD COONAN

 

John Woo, Chen Kaige and Zhang Ziyi were among those receiving the gongs at China’s top domestic kudosfest, the state-sponsored Huabiao Awards, which featured a host of stars from the Chinese diaspora.

The hand of the Communist government is much in evidence at these biennial awards, particularly in the way so many awards are shared.

Traditionally they are mainly for honoring propaganda films, but with the rise of the film biz in China to heady new heights, there has been more of a commercial focus, plus a lot more thesps and helmers from Hong Kong and Taiwan. Action stars Jackie Chan and Jet Li also took part this year.

The awards are sponsored by the industry regulator, SARFT (State Administration of Broadcast, Film and Television) and began life as the Ministry of Culture’s Excellent Film Awards in 1957.

Chen Kaige, best known in the West for “Farewell, My Concubine,” won the outstanding director award for “Forever Enthralled,” a biopic of the Peking Opera star Mei Lanfang. He shared with local favourite Feng Xiaogang, who won for his Chinese civil war movie “Assembly.”

There has been a lot of speculation that Chen Kaige has become a U.S.

citizen, earning him the ire of China’s online community who deem such a decision as unpatriotic.

However, Chen made a rousing declaration of national allegiance.

“I don't plan to become a foreign citizen and I have never done so. I will work hard to spread Chinese culture as a Chinese national. This is called not forgetting your identity,” he said.

Actioner supremo John Woo, recently returned from Hollywood, was given the prize of best ethnic Chinese director from outside mainland China for his two-part Chinese-language blockbuster “Red Cliff”.

Zhang Ziyi shared the best actress award with Fan Zhibo for her performance as Mei's love interest in “Forever Enthralled.” Fan won for the drama “Emergency.”

Zhang Hanyu won the best thesp award for “Assembly,” which he shared with Guo Jinglin for “Yuan Longping,” a biopic about the agricultural scientist who developed hybrid rice.

The best ethnic Chinese actor from outside mainland China was Hong Kong action star Donnie Yen for his role as Bruce Lee's kung fu master in “Ip Man,” while Shu Qi from Taiwan won the actress award in this category for “If You Are The One.”

Taking their name from the decorative columns outside the Forbidden City in the heart of Beijing, the Huabiao awards are one of a series of high-profile, state-sponsored awards.

(Associated Press contributed to this report)

And the winners are:

BEST DIRECTOR: Chen Kaige “Forever Enthralled”/Feng Xiaogang “Assembly”

BEST ACTRESS: Zhang Ziyi “Forever Enthralled”/Fan Zhibo “Emergency”

BEST ACTOR: Zhang Hanyu “Assembly”/Guo Jinglin “Yuan Longping”

More on the 13th HuaBiao Awards

HONG KONG � "Farewell My Concubine" director Chen Kaige, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" star Zhang Ziyi and director John Woo were among the filmmakers honored at China's government-organized Huabiao film awards in Beijing.

Veteran action stars Jackie Chan and Jet Li and actor Chow Yun-fat also walked the red carpet at the biennial awards ceremony held by China's State Administration of Radio, Film and Television late Saturday.

This year's ceremony was especially star-studded because the booming mainland market is becoming increasingly lucrative to actors and directors from Hong Kong and Taiwan.

The awards have a reputation for honoring propaganda films but have incorporated commercial cinema.

Chen was named outstanding director along with Feng Xiaogang. Chen was honored for his biopic of late Peking Opera star Mei Lanfang, "Forever Enthralled." Feng won for his war movie "Assembly," which revolves around the heroics of a People's Liberation Army unit during the Chinese civil war in the 1940s.

Chen struck a patriotic note in his acceptance speech, shooting down recent speculation that he had become an American citizen.

"I don't plan to become a foreign citizen and I have never done so. I will work hard to spread Chinese culture as a Chinese national. This is called not forgetting your identity," Chen said.

Zhang shared best actress honors with Fan Zhibo for her performance as Mei's love interest in "Forever Enthralled." Fan won for the drama "Emergency."

Zhang Hanyu won best actor for "Assembly." He shared best acting honors with Guo Jinglin, who starred in a biopic of rice scientist Yuan Longping.

Woo received the prize for best ethnic Chinese director from outside mainland China. The Hong Kong native, known for his stylish action thrillers, recently returned from Hollywood to make the $80 million, two-part Chinese-language historical epic "Red Cliff," which was a massive hit in China, earning 600 million Chinese yuan ($88 million).

Hong Kong action star Donnie Yen was named best ethnic Chinese actor outside mainland China for playing Bruce Lee's kung fu master Ip Man. Taiwan's Shu Qi won best actress outside the mainland for her role in Feng's romantic comedy "If You Are the One."

Dragon's Heart, Tangshan, Hebei, 12-13 October 2009

Press conference in Tangshan, Hebei today announced that Jackie will be in Tangshan on the 12 -13 October. tangshan.huanbohainews.com.cn

Today was the 33 Anniversary of the Tangshan earthquake in 1976.

Today marks the 33rd anniversary of the Great Tangshan Earthquake, believed to be the largest earthquake disaster of the 20th century thanks to its immense death toll. The earthquake hit very early in the morning, at 3:42am, which contributed to its extreme deadliness. Chinese official sources stated that it measured a 7.8 on the Richter scale. It was then followed by a 7.8 magnitude aftershock about 16 hours later.

The government reaction to the Tangshan earthquake compared to that of the Sichuan earthquake of 2008 is one measurement of how much China has changed in the past three decades. While the official death toll for Tangshan is 242,419, the figure is shrouded in controversy. According to Wikipedia:

The Tangshan earthquake killed 242,419 people according to official figures, though some sources estimate a death toll is up to three times higher. This would make it the deadliest earthquake in modern times, and the second or third deadliest in recorded history. It is worth noting that the population of Tangshan at the time of quake strike was estimated to be around 1.6 million. As most of Tangshan's city proper was flattened, it is reasonable to estimate the actual death toll to be much higher.


Many experts believe the Chinese government has never released an accurate death toll for the disaster. The death toll figure of 242,419 came from the Chinese Seismological Service in 1988, while some sources have estimated the death toll to be at 650,000. Others range as high as 700,000. The initial estimates of 655,000 dead and 779,000 injured were released by Hebei Revolutionary Committee.

The earthquake will be making its way to the silver screen next year, according to CRI English. Feng Xiaogang, director of Big Shot's Funeral and The Banquet, has started shooting Aftershock, a story of how the Tangshan Earthquake affected the lives surrounding a seven-year-old girl. It'll be the first Chinese film to be released in IMAX and plans on premiering exactly a year from now.

Traffic Lights

 

Traffic lights, blinking eyes,

Must look clearly at every flash,

Red light means stop, green light means go,

Yellow light get ready, stop.

The pedestrian sidewalk, the zebra crossing,

Safety is assured between the black and white,

Crossing the road must look left and right,

Remember the road rules off by heart.

Young children, tightly hold each other’s hand,

Let’s learn to sing this song together,

Every child will grow up happy and healthy.

We all have very many dreams,

And also very many wishes,

Traffic safety protects us so we can make them all come true.

Wear colorful clothes on rainy, snowy and foggy days,

Line up in groups, move together tightly,

And return home the usual way.

Cross the road bridge, through the subway,

Don’t dash or sprint across the streets,

Must firmly remember the rules of safety,

Truly extremely happy.

Young children, tightly hold each other’s hand,

Let’s learn to sing this song together,

Every child will grow up happy and healthy.

We all have very many dreams,

And also very many wishes,

Traffic safety protects us so we can make them all come true.

Shengsi Bu Li Lyrics

生死不離
In life or death we are never apart
你的夢落在哪裡
To the place where your dreams land
想著生活繼續
Life never ends
天空失去了美麗
When the skies went dark
你卻等待夢在明天站起
You're waiting to stand up again
你的呼喊刻在我的血液裡
And your cries are engraved in my blood


生死不離
In life or death we are never apart
我數秒等你的消息
To the seconds I count waiting for your return
相信生命不息
Life never ends
與你祈禱一起呼吸
I pray for you, I breathe for you
我看不到你卻牽掛在心裡
I can't see you but I feel for you
你的目光是我全部的意義
And your gaze is sending me to find you


無論你在哪裡
I am going to find you
我都要找到你
Wherever you are
血脈能創造奇蹟 生命是命題
The same blood we share will make a miracle start
無論你在哪裡
I am going to find you
我都要找到你
Wherever you are
手拉著手 生死不離
Hand in hand we are never apart


生死不離
In life or death we are never apart
全世界都被沉寂
To a world that mourns in silence
痛苦也不哭泣
We shall not cry
愛是你的傳奇
Love is your legacy
彩虹在風雨後堅強升起
When the rainbow rises up after the storm
我在努力看到愛的力氣
The power of love will light up the sky


無論你在哪裡
I am going to find you
我都要找到你
Wherever you are
血脈能創造奇蹟 生命是命題
The same blood we share will make a miracle start
無論你在哪裡
I am going to find you
我都要找到你
Wherever you are
天裂了 去縫起
Hand in hand a home-bound path we raise up


你一絲希望是我全部的動力
One thread of hope is all I need
搭起我的手築成你回家的路基
Hand in hand a home-bound path we raise up


無論你在哪裡
I am going to find you
我都要找到你
Wherever you are
血脈能創造奇蹟 生命是命題
The same blood we share will make a miracle start
無論你在哪裡
I am going to find you
我都要找到你
Wherever you are
手拉著手 生死不離
Hand in hand we are never apart


無論你在哪裡
I am going to find you
我都要找到你
Wherever you are
血脈能創造奇蹟 大山毅然舉起
The same blood we share will make a miracle start
無論你在哪裡
I am going to find you
我都要找到你
Wherever you are
天裂了 去縫起
Hand in hand a home-bound path we raise up


手拉著手 生死不離
In life or death we are never apart

References/Homages to Great Western Films in Shanghai Noon

Well just for a bit of background information on the Western genre:

The Western depicts a society organized around codes of honor and personal, direct or private justice (such as the feud) ... The popular perception of the Western is a story that centers on the life of a semi-nomadic wanderer, usually a cowboy or a gunfighter.

In some ways, such protagonists may be considered the literary descendants of the knight errant which stood at the center of an earlier extensive genre. Like the cowboy or gunfighter of the Western, the knight errant of the earlier European tales and poetry was wandering from place to place on his horse, fighting villains of various kinds and bound to no fixed social structures but only to his own innate code of honor. And like knights errant, the heroes of Westerns frequently rescue damsels in distress.

The Western typically takes these elements and uses them to tell simple morality tales, usually set against the spectacular scenery of the American West . . . Westerns often stress the harshness of the wilderness and frequently set the action in a desert-like landscape. Specific settings include isolated forts, ranches and homesteads; the Native American village; or the small frontier town with its saloon, general store, livery stable and jailhouse. Apart from the wilderness, it is usually the saloon that emphasizes that this is the "Wild West": it is the place to go for music (raucous piano playing), girls (often prostitutes), gambling (draw poker or five card stud), drinking (beer or whiskey), brawling and shooting.

and

Western films were enormously popular in the silent era although, in common with all films of this period, relatively few of the thousands of silent Westerns made have survived to the present. However, with the advent of sound in 1927-28 the major Hollywood studios rapidly abandoned Westerns, leaving the genre to smaller studios and producers, who churned out countless low-budget features and serials in the 1930s. By the late 1930s the Western film was widely regarded as a 'pulp' genre in Hollywood, but its popularity was dramatically revived in 1939 by the release of John Ford's landmark Western adventure Stagecoach, which became one of the biggest hits of the year and made John Wayne a major screen star.

WIKIPEDIA:WESTERNS

1. The train robbery in which Roy O Bannon meets Chon Wang for the first time follows the plot of a silent movie great - The Great Train Robbery fairly closely.

The hanging scene with the rope being severed as Roy and Chon fall through the trap door, with the "daring rescue" as do the scenes with Chon's horse drinking whisky and getting drunk reference a Western Comedy, Cat Ballou.

Of course there is the Chon Wang/John Wayne reference and staying with names at the end of the film Roy reveals his real name is Wyatt Earp, who is of course most known for the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral.  The real Wyatt Earp appeared in a Western The Half Breed (1919)'The Shanghai Kid' could reference John Wayne's character in Stagecoach - 'The Ringo Kid'.

Staying with names - the Marshall is 'Nathan Van Cleef' which is a reference to the actor Lee Van Cleef who appeared in many Westerns.

Of the course the title of the film itself is a play on High Noon starring Gary Cooper and Grace Kelley.

In the bar-room Roy says 'you bounce back fast kemosabe' to Chon. This is a reference to The Lone Ranger

(This is the first episode of The Lone Ranger which aired in 1949)

Roy's old gang steal a wagon which has 'Wild Bill' painted on the side, which could reference  Wild Bill Hickock.  It could also be a reference to Buffalo Bill Cody and his Wild West Show. Buffalo Bill also made an onscreen appearance in The Adventures of Buffalo Bill (1917)

One more linguistic reference may be Roy's use of 'sayonara'. Not many people may know that a Japanese classic Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai,  was remade as The Magnificent Seven. And many of the Westerns of the 1950'2 were influenced by his Japanese Samurai films. 

The bar room fight and Roy's crooked card game is a reference to another silent era classic Western - Poker at Dawson City (1899) set during the Alaska Gold Rush, about a crooked poker game with flagrant cheating that led to a fight.

There are so many conventions of Western movies in this film that it is almost impossible to distinguish any particular film in which they appear. Examples of this are the line of Indians against the skyline, the saloon, the jailhouse, the gallows, the mission on the hill the brothel scenes, the posse and leaving Roy to die in the desert, from which he miraculously escapes death. 

Another Western convention is that of white hats and black hats. You will notice in the movie that Chon and Roy have white hats while the Marshall and Lo Fang have black hats. This dates right back to the earliest days of Westerns where people liked the hero and villain to be clearly identified thus leading to the use of the black hat (bad guy) vs white hat (good guy). It is interesting to note that two of the most notable characters/actors to utilize this convention in Westerns were Lee Van Cleef and The Lone Ranger.

Historical, Literary and Film References in Shanghai Noon continued ...

Other references in the film include a reference to Puss in Boots, which is in itself (in some versions) a reference to Dick Whittington and his Cat. Dick Whittington was both a real historical figure, Richard Whittington, and a character in the pantomime. The brothel/boarding house are located in Whitechapel.

When Roy and Chon are arrested they are taken to Scotland Yard, and later in the movie they are taken away in a Black Maria, after being arrested in Madame Tussauds. An interesting aside is that Jackie doesn't have a wax figure in the Tussauds in London but does in Paris, Hong Kong, Shanghai and New York. His figure in New York is bright orange for some unfathomable reason.

Roy and Chon have to rescue Queen Victoria from an assassination attempt at her Golden Jubilee Celebration. Ignoring the chronological difficulties, as the real Victoria celebrated her Golden Jubilee on the 20th June 1887 (which was prior to the events in Shanghai Noon even). However there was a real assassination attempt on her at this time, which is known as The Jubilee Plot. The Jubilee Plot was a Fenian (Irish Nationalist) plot to blow up Westminster Abbey, the Queen and half the British Cabinet.

Being typical tourists, Roy and Chon visit Buckingham Palace and Roy attempts to solicit a reaction from the Royal Guard (Queen's Guard) outside. 

0

Historical, Literary and Film References in Shanghai Knights

At the beginning of the film, when Chon Wang and Roy O'Bannon arrive in England and chase the kid, the 'gang' that they run into is run by Fagin. Fagin of course is the character from Charles Dicken's Oliver Twist.

At the very end of the movie, we discover that the kid is none other than Charlie Chaplin, with a very obvious moustache reference.
