Fool for love is a great example for youngsters in love
13 March 2011 | by naravphongSee all my reviews

Have seen many Vietnamese movies so far, I have to confess that 'De Mai Tinh' (Fool for love) is the best one describing a modern love in the Vietnamese modern society. It's beautiful, romantic like a fairy-tale with a happy ending. You may know what is going to happen at the end,but you cannot help watching it joyfully. Saigon and Nha Trang, in the movie, become the two Vietnamese paradises. Music is likely a string with scenes hung on. Thao Trang's voice is sexy like a jasmine flower. In the dark stage, it appear like the scent of the best perfume. The characters, especially the homosexual, all drive thew story through twists and twists. With interesting details, we may laugh, we may cry, just like we are walking on a line - between comedy and tragedy. A+ for the casting team when the choose appropriate persons for the roles. People may not think the movie shows the real love in the today world, girls/women may choose rich men with expensive cars, living in mansions. However, love is all around. When it catches us, we do not know what is happening. And our decisions can be Mai's (In Vietnamese, the title of the movie means 'Let Mai decide/choose/think'). We control our lives, we choose what we want. In love, the most happiest thing is that we love the ones we need. We do not marry to money. The message of 'Fool for love' is old but clear. This movie teaches us how to live and how to love.
