Critic Reviews for Buffalo Boy
If you have ever wondered what the life of a Vietnamese peasant was like in the 1940s, it seems unlikely there will be a lovelier evocation of it than Buffalo Boy.
Ostensibly a coming-of-age story, this languorous, beautifully shot feature debut from Vietnam tells a deceptively simple tale in a deceptively simple fashion.
In a lesser film, the copious floods would signal pat themes of life and renewal, but Nguyen-Vo emphasizes the water's destructive power as well.
Austere but beautiful film about the desperately poor in Vietnam during the 1940s.
This beautiful film offers a rare, poetic glimpse of life in rural Vietnam during the French occupation.
Audience Reviews for Buffalo Boy
If you want to see a story about people in Vietnam that doesn't involve the Vietnam war, then here you go. The good parts involve how nice it is to see the landscapes within the wold of water buffalo herders. The music is very nicely done as well. The actors work well in their roles. The bad is that the story is so damn depressing and takes it's time.
