Meanwhile the story shifts to a different group of characters. Chen Jiaye played by Lau Wing Kin is an artist who is drawing a martial arts manual for all of the poses of the Drunken Monkey kung fu style. Ah De played by Wu Jing is suspended in air on ropes and wiggles like a marionette as his master draws. Wu Jing is a muscular young guy who spends a substantial amount of the film with his shirt off.
They bump into the ferry lady in town and follow her raft to the secluded house where she has been nursing the older brother back to health. Ah De copies a motion he observes from this master, AKA Man Bil (Biao) [I think I have this right]. The constable Hong Yi-Hu played by Gordon Liu reports it to the evil younger brother who now believes his older brother is alive. They follow Ad De & his artist master to the ferry lady's house where the final long confrontation begins.
The film is fast paced. The emphasis is comedic rather than filled with gore. The poses Ah De gets immitating a monkey are hilarious. Watching this from the West, some of the comedy did not translate and the plot is so intricate that it strains believability. However, "Drunken Monkey" is not boring and often quite charming. Enjoy!
