Wong Kar Wai's “The Grandmaster”
Friday, August 23, 2013
Director Wong Kar Wai discusses his long-awaited latest film, “The Grandmaster.” It’s about Ip Man, the grandmaster who trained Bruce Lee, and it fuses king fu with romance. Hong Kong heartthrob Tony Leung plays Ip Man, and Zhang Ziyi plays a beautiful Bagua master, who Ip Man falls in love with. The film is a thoughtful meditation on love, loss, and 20th-century Chinese history. It opens in New York August 23 at Lincoln Plaza, the Angelika, and AMC Empire.
