A tribute to the great Akira Kurosawa, the grace and beauty of judo, and the neon-lit nighttime streets of Hong Kong, this wonderfully deadpan comedy was directed by Johnnie To, one of Hong Kong's most talented and prolific auteurs. It follows the exploits of an alcoholic former judo champion who now runs a seedy bar and the young disciple who tries to convince him to return to the sport he once loved. 2004 / 95 min. / Cantonese with Chinese and English subtitles
