synopsis

This all time martial arts classic, directed by SAMMO HUNG (Pedicab Driver, Millionaires' Express), is considered by many to be the most authentic kung-fu film ever made. YUNE BIAO (Eastern Condors, Righting Wrongs, and Zu) is a spoiled martial artist-wannable son whose wealthy father pays others to lose to Yuen during fights. When his father's scheme is revealed to him by a seasoned Peking Opera performer / Wing chun master (LAM CHING YING), Yuen vows to learn kung-fu for real. But first he has to persuade Lam to take him on as a pupil, then there's Lam's rival colleague (SAMMO HUNG himself) and a mysterious, fight-seeking challenger to contend with!

THE PRODIGAL SON is filled with humor, drama, fantastic training sequences, and realistic, classic Wing Chun fights that earned the film Best Action Direction accolade at the Hong Kong Film Awards.
