Michelle Yeoh portrayed a number of Chinese warrior maidens before her iconic performance in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. In Yuan Woo Ping's Wing Chun, Yeoh is Yim Wing Chun, whose namesake kung-fu style is best known as the foundation of Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do system. Yeoh's heroine fights off an unwanted suitor in a series of comedic battles. Surprisingly, little actual Wing Chun kung fu is depicted in the film. Cheng Pei Pei, who was the antagonist in Crouching Tiger, has a cameo as Shaolin nun Ng Mui, Yim Wing Chun's mentor. For trivia buffs: Donnie Yen plays Leung Pok To, who married Wing Chun and passed on the system where Lee learned it 5 generations later. Yen's most famous film role to date has been of Ip Man, Bruce Lee's teacher in Hong Kong.
