The Final Master
Location: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Xu Haofeng. 2015, 109 mins. Digital projection. With Liao Fan, Song Jia, Jiang Wenli, Jin Shijie, Song Yang. This action-packed, bone-crunching movie is from the writer of Wong Kar-wai’s The Grandmaster. On the eve of World War II, a Wing Chun master comes to Tianjin, considered the birthplace of martial arts in northern China, intending to open a school in honor of his late master. The local masters of the town’s eight martial arts schools, however, are openly opposed to his plan, so with no other recourse, Chen secretly challenges the masters to prove the power of his skills. But what Chen does not realize is that he is a pawn in the schools’ struggle for supreme dominance.
