Poignant but not treacly, “Crouching Tiger” deals with an immigrant child’s conflicting emotions toward a grandparent from the old country. Vinson — Ming Da to his grandfather — wants to learn kung fu, but his grandfather insists on teaching him the tamer and seemingly far less cool art of tai chi. Eventually, he learns to appreciate his Chinese heritage in a convincing, unsentimental way, and to value the wisdom of his forebears. Nascimbene’s delicate ink and watercolor illustrations are exquisite.
