Painted Faces is a 1988 Hong Kong drama film written and directed by Alex Law and starring Sammo Hung as his mentor, Master Yu Jim-yuen, of the China Drama Academy. For his portrayal as Master Yu, Hung won his second Hong Kong Film Award for Best Actor at the 8th Hong Kong Film Awards. The film was selected as the Hong Kong entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 62nd Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee.
The Chinese title refers to the Seven Little Fortunes, which includes Hung, Jackie Chan and his fellow opera-mates, who later made it big in the Hong Kong film industry. The film focuses on Master Yu and his methods on bringing up his protégés.
