Once Upon a Time in China
(Wong Fei Hung)

by TSUI Hark


1875, China is changing and, under the influence of Western inventions and traditions, it is also opening up to new commercial practices that promote firearms imports and slave-trading. Wong Fei-hung, a master of martial arts and Chinese medicine, is concerned by these changes and their consequences. At the head of a local militia, he tries to preserve what is left of peace and stability in this great upheaval of values. Tsui Hark’s cult film, Once Upon a Time in China, also launched the international career of Jet Li.
