This might just be the perfect time to soak up some of its calm and natural beauty.
Tran Anh Hung, who earned an Oscar nomination for his first movie, The Scent of Green Papaya (1993), has created another exquisite portrait of Vietnamese family life.
The film's minimalism works against it.
A film shaped ... around the mundane, endlessly fascinating and humanizing details of who we are right here and now.
The Vertical Ray of Sun is beautiful, languorous, passive -- it plays like background music for itself.
Like all the best international cineastes, [Tran] puts us in another world.
Tran is not judgmental of his characters. No one is a bad guy; everyone is lost, but only a few steps from the right path, and love can re-direct them to a better life.
a gorgeous dream half-remembered.
A fascinating film.
As impenetrable as the film seems at times, it's also visually stunning ... and the performances are uniformly good.
The story is pure melodrama but Tran photographs it with a sense of grace that doesn't judge...
It is so painterly perfect you could hang it on the wall.
