The Grandmaster. It's somewhat successful. It can be slightly unclear at times yet beautifully shot, fairly ponderous trying to follow the “Confucius say…” lines they've written for every other sentence, but nevertheless thoughtful and meditative. Although there's plenty of fighting, it's one of those films that doesn't give you action for action's sake, each match is choreographed with the dialogue to have an actual purpose in advancing the characters as the fight progresses and resolves. Feelings the characters have about Wing Chun and other schools of thought made the kung-fu into a near character itself. Ziyi Zhang and Tony Leung both give solid performances.
