Wing Chun (1994)

Female Kung-Fu expert protects her village from bandits.

One of the best all-around Kung Fu flicks you will see. Michelle Yeoh  is perfect as a calm, melancholy kick-ass tofu chef.  What's nice is a lack of blood and gore, and superb slapstick kung fu action.  Lots of slobbering local men and a wacky tofu-shop lady for a little silly comedy thrown in.

By the way, the kung fu choreography is top notch.  If you don't know Yuen Woo-ping, learn him now.....(choreographer and action director for Kill Bill, The Matrix, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Drunken Master, Iron Monkey, Kung Fu Hustle, and a score of others)

My wife is not a huge Kung Fu fan, but she greatly enjoyed this one.
