On the eve of the Japanese invasion in 1936, China is in turmoil and the country teeters on the brink of partition. Yip Man, who would become a legendary Chinese martial arts master and Bruce Lee’s menthor, confronts not only other martial arts icons, but also the turmoil of war and fated love.

MUBI's take

A martial-arts historical drama that balances an intimate, perceptive romantic drama with complexly choreographed high-wire action sequences, this is Wong Kar Wai working on a much larger and livelier scale, making a film as philosophical and poetic as it is unforgivingly kick-ass.
