Once Upon A Time In China III


Synopsis
Wong Fei Hung visits his father, with his now fiancee Aunt 13, only to find that his fathers place has been trashed by a local rival lion dance school. There is a big lion dance contest coming up organised by the government in an attempt to show the strength and unity of the Chinese to the westeners. However, in preparing for the event things becoming over-heated between the rival schools who want to enter. While all this is going on Aunt 13 meets an old friend from the past, a gwailo who has a particularly fond liking for her, much to Wong Fei Hung's disapproval. Things get more heated between the rival schools, and the westerner friend starts to appear a lot more sinister than first imagined. This leads to the climax of the film, which must go down as one of the biggest lion dance events to be put on film. Hundreds of lions all competing for the one prize - it really does have to be seen to be believed.
