Ip Man was the legendary grandmaster of Wing Chun, and changed martial arts forever. Throughout his life he helped popularize martial arts, and counted Bruce Lee among his students. Here we meet him at the end of his life, recollecting stories of his earlier days. THE GRANDMASTER recreates the life of the legend in a most extraordinary way. The aesthetic aspects of martial arts become apparent through the many beautifully shot battle scenes, which help make the film a truly fascinating and spellbinding experience.
