Veteran Yang Jinyuan: A novel blew the "assembly number"

  "Every sacrifice is immortal!" The New Year’s blockbuster "Assembly" directed by Xiaogang Feng received rave reviews from the audience as soon as it was released. Yang Jinyuan, the author of the original film "Lawsuit", a retired sailor and editor-in-chief of Overseas Chinese Times in Putian City, Fujian Province, quickly became a hot figure.


  After graduating from high school, Yang Jinyuan entered the military camp and became a sailor in a frigate brigade of the Shanghai base of the East China Sea Fleet. Looking back on his military career, Yang Jinyuan often lamented: "It was six years as a sailor, which gave me the precipitation of military life and made me create military themes. My fate with Lawsuit and Assembly also comes from the military complex in my bones. "


  Yang Jinyuan said that the novel "Lawsuit" was written by accident, and it was more due to his sensitivity to an event. It was one day six years ago, Yang Jinyuan was watching TV with his family, and the talk show People’s Story of CCTV caught his attention. The film tells the story that all the comrades-in-arms of a veteran were killed in a battle of the liberation war, and only he survived the injury. For a long time, the veteran has been looking around for the remains of his comrades-in-arms to prove that they are not missing persons but martyrs. In order to remember his comrades-in-arms, the old man moved his home near the military camp. Whenever the bugle sounded, he always appeared at the gate of the military camp. "Although it took only two minutes for TV programs to tell this story, the two images of bugles and veterans immediately aroused my strong interest. I thought at that time that I could write a novel about it, just about war, commitment and credit! " Yang Jinyuan was deeply moved by the war friendship forged in the gunfire and smoke, and his creative inspiration poured out.


  So, Yang Jinyuan wrote this true story into the novel "Lawsuit". In order to cover the transfer of large troops, the persistent "one-track-minded" company, Elder Valley, was ordered to fight a war of resistance, and made an appointment with the colonel, taking the assembly number at midnight as the order to retreat. However, the old valley and the brothers of the whole company killed from day to midnight, and then from midnight to dawn, waiting hard in the fight of life until the whole company was killed one after another, leaving only the old valley injured and surviving, and did not hear the assembly number blowing. Did the colonel forget to let the trumpeter play the trumpet, or did the troops leave the whole company behind? This question has been puzzling the old valley. After being separated from his troops, Lao Gu spent decades looking for the head of the regiment, trying to "make a statement", only to learn that the head of the regiment had died in the Korean battlefield. The novel was first published in the April issue of Fujian Literature in 2002, and then reprinted in the June issue of Novel Monthly. Later, Zhang Guoli, a famous actor, discovered The Lawsuit and recommended it to Xiaogang Feng, a famous director. The film Assembly has a story template.


  From an early age, Yang Jinyuan often heard his family tell him "revolutionary fragments". "After a place, my parents will tell me that it was here decades ago that they ventured through the blockade to survive. At the time of the war, big or small dangers often come. In the open and dark battles between the enemy and me, life and death are often in a flash. " Fujian is an old revolutionary base area. In wartime, "missing" soldiers are not uncommon. In the chaos of war and chaos, troops often reduce their numbers or temporarily increase their numbers. The people who lead the troops often can’t know exactly how many people were in the army yesterday and how many people are today. It is even more difficult to find out how some people are missing afterwards. Therefore, in post-war statistics, the number of "unknown martyrs" far exceeds that of famous martyrs with surnames. According to the pension statistics of the Ministry of Civil Affairs at the beginning of liberation, there were more than 1 million famous martyrs in the revolutionary war, and the unknown martyrs were at least several times this number. After the diffuse smoke clears, some things are often ignored or even forgotten.


  For such a thing, Yang Jinyuan gradually developed a sense of responsibility to "reflect it". In 1991, Yang Jinyuan, who had returned from the army to work in Putian, began to take over the task of shooting a feature film on revolutionary themes. During that time, he traveled all over the old revolutionary base areas in Putian, surrounded by past details every day. "It is difficult for people to recall something completely. He doesn’t know what a feature film wants. Although the past history is grand, all the people in the authorities will know are some details, and what he tells you are some personal feelings," Yang Jinyuan said. "Later, I thought it might be more appropriate to write this history in the form of a novel." If we carefully taste Yang Jinyuan’s war novels, we should pay attention to individual destiny, which is the "central idea" of his creation. On the contrary, war becomes blurred and becomes the background of the fate of the characters, because in his view, the novels focus on people and their thoughts and souls.


  Yang Jinyuan has his own understanding that his novel "Lawsuit" can be seen by Xiaogang Feng and made into such a blockbuster with strong repercussions: "In the past, military movies and TV shows, such as Heroes and Children, Fighting in the South and Fighting in the North, etc., all highlighted the lofty image of soldiers, but now such films have begun to change to describe the inner heart of the characters, such as Bright Sword, Years of Burning Passion and so on. And "Lawsuit" is all about the fate of small people from beginning to end. I discuss the problem of human nature and look back at the war from human nature. Perhaps this attracted Feng Dao. "


  This cooperation with Xiaogang Feng is not the first "electric shock" for Yang Jinyuan. Before Lawsuit, he also wrote many works, such as A Woman with a Sword in Her Life, Don’t Marry Me If I’m Not a Virgin, The Courtyard, The Conscript, etc. Among them, The Courtyard and The Conscript have all been adapted into TV dramas and broadcast on CCTV.


  Now, the bugle of Assembly has not fallen, and Yang Jinyuan’s other military novel Breakthrough has also emerged. The famous director Huang Jianzhong personally prefaces the publication of the book and is preparing to make it into a 30-episode TV series. (Liberation Army Daily/Xu Outline Wang Jinping Chen Ji)
