After I exited the theater that screened 'The Children Of Huang Shi', I
was on a cloud. This is easily one of the best films of 2008 (so far
the other is Mongol). The plot concerns a foreign correspondent from
Australia in China covering the Chinese/Japanese war in 1937, who gets
in over his head by venturing out of the safety zone of Bejing, into
the thick of the war, and gets involved helping an orphanage of Chinese
war orphans. A woman doctor also gets tossed in for good measure in the
proceedings. This is a finely acted drama that is a bit rough to watch
at times, but is well worth the effort. You could do a lot worse than
'The Children Of Huang Shi' (does 'You Don't Mess With The Zohan' mean
