The Grandmaster Yi dai zong shi

Wong Kar Wai / Hong Kong, China / 2013 / 123 min


The DVD of the film is available in our Bookshop. (List of available DVDs in Slovene only)

After two decades of gentler subjects, Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar Wai is returning to the genre of martial arts.

The story of two kung fu masters: he comes from China’s south; she is from the north. His name is Ip Man; hers is Gong Er. Their paths cross in the town of Foshan on the eve of the Japanese invasion in 1936. China is in turmoil and the country’s south teeters on the brink of partition from the north. Gong Er’s father is a renowned grandmaster. He too travels to Foshan for his retirement ceremony. The ongoing Japanese occupation of the northeast sets the stage for a betrayal that will shake Master Gong’s world. It will also cause Gong Er to make a decision that will change the course of her life.

»Some seek to recover what is rightfully theirs. Some wish to penetrate the arcane mysteries. Some light fires and some light lamps to show the way forward. Kung fu: between a horizontal and a vertical, dishonour and glory. An era: between the rise and fall, exile and reunion. The path of a Grandmaster: Being. Knowing. Doing.«

In 1989, the very idea of a competitive all-female sailboat crew was nearly inconceivable to the manly world of open-ocean yacht racing. They’d never make it to the start, much less survive to the finish. Tracy Edwards proved them wrong. The 26-year-old skipper, her second-hand racing yacht Maiden, and her seasoned crew became the first-ever all-woman challenge to the Whitbread.
