It is only a matter of a few days now until the 37th Hong Kong International Film Festival gets underway, with Herman Yau's Ip Man: Final Fight opening proceedings on Sunday 17 March. Starring Anthony Wong as the legendary wing chun practitioner, and Eric Tsang as his foe, the film is unlikely to top the giddy action heights of the recent Donnie Yen/Wilson Yip efforts, but I'm still excited.
Yau's last entry in this booming fad of Ip Man movies, The Legend Is Born: Ip Man was actually one of the better efforts, despite its modest budget. Here Wong plays the martial artist in his twilight years, living in Hong Kong as it recovers from the Japanese occupation, who is forced into a final confrontation with a local neighbourhood gangster.
Below you'll find a behind the scenes featurette, featuring interviews with the cast and crew and plenty of on-set footage. It's not subtitled in English, but there is still plenty of information here to share.
