Synopsis

The story of Ip Man - the real-life martial arts master who instructed Bruce Lee - is told by Chinese director Wong Kar Wai in his characteristically languid style. Tony Leung plays the charismatic chop-socky merchant in a tale that takes in the Sino-Japanese War, the exodus to Hong Kong and the married Ip Man's unrequited love for his own master's daughter. Visually ravishing, poignantly played, it's an intelligent homage to martial arts that's taken 17 years to reach the big screen.
