- +

Hong Kong director Wong Kar Wai's long-awaited martial arts film ``The Grandmaster'' was shown in public for the first time in Beijing on Sunday, after more than six years in production. 

The film spans several decades of Chinese history to tell the story of legendary martial artist Yip Man, who went on to train Bruce Lee, and features lengthy battles between rival kung fu masters.

Wong, 54, is best known for his 2000 slow-burn drama ''In the Mood for Love''.
