Ninh Duong Lan Ngoc,
Most significant cinematography masterpiece from Victor Vu yet.
The movie is set in 1980's rural area of Vietnam and the story follows 12-year old Thieu, his 7-year old brother Tuong and Thieu's childhood crush Moon. The brothers do everything together, play in rice paddies, running errands, sleep on same bed...their days are filled with curious adventures. Then one day Moon comes into the picture and incites Thieu's insecurities and jealousy towards his brother Tuong who, by hid nature, is trusting and full of innocence. Even when Thieu inflicts physical harm to Tuong, the younger brother continues to idolize Thieu and constantly seeks his approval.
One could easily pick up that the movie is a string of small episodes involving the lives of these three characters in rural area where resources are scarce and that the welfare sometimes depends on the sacrifices made.
