Fist Of Legend review

Film description

Chen Zhen, a Chinese engineering student in Kyoto, who braves the insults and abuse of his Japanese fellow students for his local love Mitsuko Yamada, daughter of the director, returns in 1937 to his native Shangai, under Japanese protectorate -in fact military occupation- after reading about the death of his Kung-Fu master Hou Ting-An in a fight against the Japanese champion Ryuichi Akutagawa. While overcoming suspicion and ambition within the Kung-Fu school, Chen exhumes his master to prove Hou's defeat was the result of poisoning. Both nationalities make the case a test of honour, so Chinese and Japanese pride are at stake when it culminates in Chen's final epic duel against the ruthless, undefeated Japanese general Fujita.
