SFFS Screen presents VENGEANCE

Johnny To's VENGEANCE will screen at Sundance Kabuki Cinemas as part of the San Francisco Film Society's SFFS Screen series from August 13-19.


The SFFS Screen returns to the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas July 30. Since June 2008, the Film Society has presented its acclaimed film programs and events at the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas on a daily basis.

Neo-noir fans will welcome this genre-busting gem populated by a hit man turned chef, family men moonlighting as assassins and earnestly official women detectives. VENGEANCE is a rich, fragrant reduction of To’s favorite themes (male bonding and codes of loyalty, the triad underworld, vengeance) trademarks (slow-motion clouds of blood, unforgettable set pieces, impossibly sleek cinematography, brooding men, black humor) and actors (Anthony Wong, Simon Yam, Lam Suet). And for good measure, it stars French crooner, Johnny Hallyday.
