All’s Well Ends Well

Clifton Ko’s cult clas­sic “All’s Well Ends Well” is per­haps the best movie around if you want to gear up to Chi­nese New Year: Fam­ily dys­func­tion, mahjong ban­ter and ter­ri­ble pranks abound as three broth­ers try to win the fa­vor of their fa­ther. This screen­ing is an ex­tended ver­sion which in­cludes a 10-minute fire­fight­ing scene star­ring Les­lie Che­ung which has never been shown in Hong Kong the­aters. Jan 30. The Grand Cin­ema, 2/F, El­e­ments, 1 Austin Rd. West, West Kowloon, 2196-8170.

Three Col­ors Tril­ogy Marathon

Pol­ish art­house di­rec­tor Krzysztof Kies­lowski’s “Three Col­ors” tril­ogy is a must-see on any film nerd’s bucket list. Set aside a Sun­day where you can marathon “Blue” (12:30pm), “White” (2:45pm) and “Red” (5:15pm)—which was nom­i­nated for three Os­cars in 1995—in one sit­ting. Themed af­ter the three na­tional col­ors and the motto of France (“lib­erty, equal­ity, fra­ter­nity”), the tril­ogy also ex­plores the idea of anti-tragedy, anti-com­edy, and anti-ro­mance. Get chin-scratch­ing. Jan 31. The Grand Cin­ema, 2/F, El­e­ments, 1 Austin Rd. West, West Kowloon, 2196-8170. $75 per movie from the­grand­cin­ema.com.hk.
