The Grandmaster Gets a Shorter International Cut
Wong Kar-Wai started production of his newest film The Grandmaster 5 years ago. Here, the story of the real existing Wing Chun master and teacher of Bruce Lee called Ip Man is told. So Kar-Wai had enough time to shape his final product in order to successfully face the competition (like other films dealing with the Ip Man starring Donnie Yen). Even though the stories surely overlap partly, Wong Kar-Wai's style will most likely play in a different league compared to the more conventional other films of the recent years.
The Grandmaster finally started in Chinese cinemas in January 2013 and had success there. It will be the opening film of the Berlinale 2013 and premiere on February 7th. However, it will be shown in a version that is 15 minutes shorter. Somehow, there's still the thought that Asian movies have to be served to the western public in an incomplete version. The new cut will run a bit under the 2-hour mark instead of the original 133 minutes and will serve as the official international version. The original most likely be offered outside of China as a Director's Cut.
