English Summary:

Aftershock is a 2010 Chinese disaster-drama film directed by Feng Xiaogang and produced by Huayi Brothers, starring Zhang Zifeng, Xu Fan, Zhang Jingchu, Chen Daoming, Lu Yi, Zhang Guoqiang and Li Chen. The film is based on a novella by Zhang Ling and depicts the aftermath of the 1976 Tangshan earthquake. It was released in China on 22 July 2010, and is the first "big commercial film" IMAX film created outside the United States. The film was a major box office success, and has grossed more than US$100 million at the Chinese box office.

Li Yuanni and her husband, Fang Daqiang, and their twin children, Fang Deng and Fang Da, live in a small apartment in Tangshan. One night in 1976, after putting their children to bed, the couple make love in the back of their truck. An earthquake suddenly breaks out, causing buildings to crumble and disintegrate. While rushing back to save their children, Fang pulls Li back and runs ahead of her but gets instantly crushed and killed by falling debris. Their apartment block collapses and traps their children under a pile of rubble.

In the aftermath of the earthquake, a rescue team informs Li that her twins are trapped under a large slab of concrete. Lifting up the slab in any way will cause one of her children to die, so she can only choose one to save. Feeling heartbroken, Li decides to save her son, Fang Da. The girl, Fang Deng, survives and regains consciousness later to find herself among several dead bodies.

Assumed to be an orphan, Fang Deng is adopted by a military couple, Wang Deqing and Dong Guilan, who bring her back to their home in Beijing. She is renamed Wang Deng after taking on her adoptive father's surname. Ten years later, she moves away from home to study in a university in Hangzhou, where she meets a graduate student, Yang Zhi, and begins an intimate relationship with him. When Fang Deng is in her third year, her adoptive mother becomes critically ill. Before dying, she asks Fang Deng to use the money they have saved to find her real family. Fang Deng soon finds out that she is pregnant. Despite being pressured by Yang Zhi to undergo an abortion, she refuses to do so, and secretly drops out of university, loses contact with Yang and does not return home. Wang Deqing meets with Yang Zhi and blames him for causing Fang Deng to leave.

 

Chinese Summary:

1976年7月28日,河北省唐山市居民目睹幾萬只蜻蜓飛離城市,但完全沒有在意而各回各家找家人們團聚。深夜凌晨3時42分,一股里氏7.8強震突然襲來,絕大部分市民都在睡夢中而完全措手不及,大部分住宅樓都因結構脆弱而瞬間坍塌,使困於裡面的住戶都被埋在殘骸下方。

地震過後,唐山一片混亂、充滿哀鳴,所有倖存者開始尋找家人,很多都抱著從廢墟裡挖出的死去家人遺體痛哭。方家之主方大強因跑回住宅樓試圖營救兩個兒女方登和方達而喪生,其妻子李元妮繼續試圖拯救被埋在殘骸下的兩個孩子,但由於姐弟倆均身處水泥板兩邊,導致市民只能撬起一頭並救出一個人。希望兩個孩子都得救而苦苦哀求的元妮無法選擇,絕境之下眼看著其他人剛要離開而嘴巴說出“救弟弟”,這句話被压在底下的方登聽在耳中。當解放軍前來援助時,疲憊的元妮和方達被解放軍接到城外,而方登從廢墟裡被挖出後從昏迷中醒來,無處可去的她被解放軍營救。

幾個月後,方登被一對解放軍夫婦王德清和董桂蘭收養,加入解放軍生活並在學校學醫,她因為慘痛經歷而無法面對真正的家人,從此隱瞞身份並跟從養父的姓、改名叫王登。元妮陪伴左臂截肢的方達搬回唐山後,拒絕跟岳母搬去濟南的請求,在抗震棚裡住满三年後,才搬回修復工作完成的唐山市。

二十年下來,方登跟著她的養父母在軍營長大,一次都沒有在他們面前提過自己的親生家人或是童年經歷。她在杭州就讀醫科大學期間認識同校同學楊志,和他發展為男女朋友關係。大三那年,養母董桂蘭因病去世,臨終前希望方登能去找她的真正家人,養父王德清此後繼續從軍且絕不離家。方登隨後發現自己懷孕,楊志因驚慌而希望她去墮胎,但方登不肯放棄這個孩子,認為楊志不會盡到父親責任後,因此自行退學離家出走,為了不被找到而就此斷絕跟楊志和養父的一切聯繫。
