Nice. Weinstein are rly trying to pack theatres out with this one. Not their usual strategy with foreign films, but they’re pushing hard this year. ‘Presented by Martin Scorsese’ etc.
Don’t expect action-packed stunts in this film despite what it might or might not look in your domestic trailers.
Oh how many seas must a legless bird fly before they call him a bird…?
If you’re a fan of loneliness in a sense (see it for yourself), any given sense coming to your mind, you will probably love this film as well.
The Chinese starlet Ms. Zhang Zi-Yi fans, check it out – this movie is for you.
…. You’re welcome…. : )
Correction: What I really meant in the first paragraph — in fact the action scenes are not too mainstream, simply put.
Ziyi Zhang is definitely the best part of the movie, but I found it to be very dull and generic overall.
Ziyi Zhang! That shot when they’re posing for the family photo — the complex expression that flutters across her face when she feels Tony Leung’s hand touch her shoulder. Took my heart all night to recover from the way her lip quivered.
Could have used a bit of Michael Dudikoff…
This is another in the Ip Man series correct?
actually it was the first film about ip man, but wong kar wai shot it over ten years !
