The Grandmaster – Film Sound Analysis
Wong Kar Wai ‘s much-appraised film “The Grandmaster” about the life and memoirs of a once great martial arts master, is a downhearted romance punctuated with breath-taking sequences of gravity-defying martial arts. The sound technique used in the movie provides an exquisite, rich, enveloping atmosphere that adds impact and realism to the dazzling shots of the kung fu movements, which otherwise would not be able to fulfill its purpose. Sound completes the visual impact and becomes an extension to the force of the actor’s moves and feelings.
