Mention the name of Bruce Lee to any aficionado of martial arts movies and they will immediately know who you are talking about.  Ask them the name of the man who taught Wing Chun kung fu to the late actor/martial artist and some may know the name Ip Man.  The Grandmaster is the story of Ip Man’s rise to prominence in the martial arts community.  Written and directed by Wong Kar-wai, whose Happy Together won the Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival, The Grandmaster focuses on Ip Man’s life in Foshan, China during the 1930s and how he eventually migrates to Hong Kong where he first meets the young Bruce Lee.
