Phim Áo Lụa Hà Đông dự giải Oscar 2008
Mình xin giới thiệu với mọi người một bộ phim đã làm mình thật sự bất ngờ. Vốn không thích lắm phim việt nam hiện đại nhưng mình nghĩ bộ phim này thật sự là "haute qualité". Bạn sẽ được thưởng thức những cảnh quay đẹp, nền nhạc đặc sắc và ấn tượng cùng một cốt truyện cảm động về tình cảm gia đình, sự hy sinh của cha mẹ cũng như tấm lòng của những đứa con.

SAD SONG OF THE YELLOW SKIN
A film about the people of Saigon told through the experiences of three young American journalists who, in 1970, explored the consequences of war and of the American presence in Vietnam. It is not a film about the Vietnam War, but about the people who lived on the fringe of battle. The views of the city are arresting, but away from the shrines and the open-air markets lies another city, swollen with refugees and war orphans, where every inch of habitable space is coveted.

A necessary Journey
"A Necessary Journey" is a transformational 17-day road trip, tracking fearless, irreverent Binh Rybacki and her Children of Peace medical team. They move from the northern remote mountains of Vietnam to the fast-changing streets of Hanoi -- once the most traditional city, now the key to understanding modern Vietnam -- to Hue, the Imperial City flattened by the 1968 Tet Offensive, and to the cyclo-choked streets of cosmopolitan Saigon. We live and work with Binh and her 42 volunteers. Traveling at an exhausting pace, the team relocates and sets ups clinics on a daily basis, sometimes being forced to change plans at the last moment as Binh duels with Communist government officials.(Read more...)
