The Grandmaster (2013)

The story of martial-arts master Ip Man, the man who trained Bruce Lee. [imdb]

Nominated for 2 Oscars:
Best Cinematography
Best Costume Design

This film reminded me a bit of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, one of the best films ever. It doesn't reach it greatness, but it has a couple of very memorable scenes (train station fight) and its Oscar nominations are both very well deserved. It should actually win the one for Costume Design, though it won't happen. 

Ziyi Zhang delivers a good performance and the overall film was a pleasant experience, quite visually stunning.

My rating for the film: 8/10.
