Code537 @kenobi The original dialogues are quite split between Cantonese and Mandarin. The characters from the South (Ip Man, Gold Pavilion patrons) speak Cantonese throughout the film while the characters from the North speak Mandarin (Gong Er, Ma San, Gong Yitian, etc). That's where Guang Zhou (aka Canton and thus Cantonese) province is, the southern part of China. And they speak their own dialect to each other, which is kinda weird cuz we don't do this. It's not easy to understand each other. For example, Ip Man and Gong Er converse in Cantonese and Mandarin to each other. I'm fluent in both so I'm not complaining but if you are only fluent in one, needing to catch every other subtitle is like "flashing lights" in your brain lol...

Kenobi I am wondering: I have read that the Movie feautures 3 Language: Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese Chinese and Japanese. But what do they speak in the orignal mainly. Is it Mandarin the Most of the Time they are speaking or Cantonese? When we are speaking of the orignal Version? Not the dubbed Versions. Thanks for any Help!

maonana grandmaster cannot be compared against ip man (donnie yen). This movie talks much and boring.....

insomnia Great movie to watch,it cure my insomia... But if you don't have insomnia,don't watch this movie.
