Drunken Master
(Jui kuen)

by YUEN Woo-Ping

Drunken Master 1

Fei-hung (Jackie Chan) is a young kung-fu apprentice, talented but pretentious. His father, fed up with his escapades, disowns him and decides to send him to his brother Soo to set him back on the right track. But Soo holds the secret to a very special discipline, as he is a zui quan master, and only engages in this form of kung-fu when totally drunk…

After Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow, the film that kick-started Jackie Chan’s career, Drunken Master was a mainstream success. Here, Chan reveals what was to become the hallmark of his genius – an acrobatic style of the martial arts in which kung-fu borrows from the circus and slapstick. In combat, jars, stools and cucumbers all serve as weapons.
