Apparently this is among one of the best Vietnamese movies so far I have seen.
To be honest, there are not many Vietnamese movies right now that after watching, you are going online and submitting a review complimenting on it. Well, guess what, De Mai Tinh is one of them.
I seriously LOVE Kathy Nguyen. I've been in love with her acting since the very first time I saw her in Chuyen Tinh Xa Xu (and I love this movie too). She's been doing a great job of illustrating the image of a modern Vietnamese woman. I've been looking for all kinds of Vietnamese movies before, and most of them are concerned with the images of women in the past. I'm not saying that it's not right or something, what I'm saying is not many images of modern Vietnamese women have been portrayed, and Kathy has done a great job of doing so. The other day I was watching "How I Met Your Mother", I would say season 2, and guess what, she starred in it. I was freaking out so badly.
And I love the plot as well. I also adore the variety of characters portrayed in the movie, like the character of Hoi. Nguyen Huong Hoi. He (or she) has done a spectacular job though in real life he's not actually gay. Every time he appeared in the screen he cracked me up. I was like "Hell no Im in love with this guy". But yes so far so good, Im in love with every character of this movie. I love how they complement each other really well, and yet, none of them has been greatly overwhelming each other.
