Synopsis Five years in the making, ‘The Grandmaster’ marks the return of Hong Kong master filmmaker Wong Kar-wai (‘Happy Together’, ‘In the Mood for Love’) with a visually breathtaking tale of betrayal, honour and love. Set against the chaos of China on the brink of war and occupation in the 30s, the film tells the story of Ip Man – the legendary Bruce Lee’s real-life kung-fu teacher. True to his impeccable style, Wong mixes the martial-arts genre with melancholy melodrama and delivers a powerful saga culminating in meticulously crafted fight scenes that play out on the big screen as ravishing ballet sequences.
