Gives a unique perspective on Vietnam. I found it all a little too simple and the pacing threw me off a bit, but it's a good film for the cultural experience and breathtaking cinematography.
A beautiful, serene, portrayal of Vietnamese snippets. Like listening to a selection of poems.
To be honest, many Vietnamese media have been produced so crappy, but this film is something special. Good job, Tony Bui!
It has a fleeting impression but I enjoyed every minute of it.
One of my favorite movies of all time.
Poignant love story set in Vietnam.
Beautiful cinematography. Makes me want to go back to Vietnam
3: Fascinating film, especially for those that have spent time in Vietnam as a tourist. The exploration of the interpersonal and intercultural interactions involved in the tourist industry is something I don't recall having seen before. For me, it was extremely recognizable and felt very authentic. The characters inner thoughts regarding the imbalances between cultures and the manner in which the local population prostitutes themselves for the almighty dollar, and a glimpse of what is thought to be a better life, merely served to confirm my own personal ruminations and suspicions. SE Asia seems to cater to the international traveler more than other regions, or at least that's how it seems to me. Tourism is the lifeblood of large segments of the society, which inevitably means that you have a poor population serving a rich population, whether it is a cyclo driver, a street vendor, a flower girl, a prostitute, a hotel manager, etc. All of these characters and more are depicted here in a very realistic and moving fashion. None of the pitfalls of the relationship between tourist and service provider are glossed over or shied away from. It is brutally honest and often verging on the uncomfortable. It seems very fitting that I picked up this film from a street vendor in Hanoi a couple months ago.
one of the best movie of all time. don't even mind those movie critics. most of them are just into those typical pretentious artsy fartsy movie with "i'm better than everyone attitude This movie is real.
A brilliant film, one of my top ten foreign language films , I give this one 10 out of 10
