Fitting tribute

It is a pleasant surprise to find that it is commercial old TVB that has decided to rearrange its schedules at the last minute to pay tribute to the late Akira Kurosawa this evening, rather than ATV. Last year, after all, ATV bravely screened Kurosawa's exquisite version of King Lear, Ran, against TVB's tacky ratings winner, The Odyssey.

IF YOU are an avid fan of arty films, you probably have Sze Cao-yiat to thank for Francois Truffaut's Finally Sunday and his early work, The Story of Adele H, Ang Lee's Pushing Hand and Heaven and Earth. Most of them have been shown at Astor and Columbia Classics.
