Institute of Contemporary Arts
April 2023
The Grandmaster, dir. Wong Kar Wai, Hong Kong / China 2013, 108 min., Cantonese and Mandarin with English subtitles, 15

Wong Kar-Wai’s lavish martial arts biopic tells the story of the Ip Man, the legendary trainer who became Bruce Lee’s mentor. Spanning several decades, it follows the story of intense rivalry and yearning that develops between the titular founder of the Wing Chun branch of kung fu, and the head of a competing school.

Combing the lyrical style for which he made his name with stunning martial arts sequences, The Grandmaster is both a thrilling action film and a sumptuous visual experience.
