CGiii Comment

A beautifully-made film.
Sweet and tender...with a truly horrific soundtrack.


The(ir) Blurb...

Hùng là một cậu bé bị cha mẹ bỏ rơi, cậu sống chung với chú ruột của mình từ nhỏ. Chú Ba làm nghề thợ may rất khéo léo và giỏi giang, luôn sống tốt với mọi người chung quanh nhưng luôn bị mọi người kỳ thị vì là người đồng tính. Những người xung quanh luôn chọc ghẹo, nói những lời lẽ không hay về chú Ba, về gia đình Hùng, Hùng cảm thấy mình bị lạc lõng và cô độc. Lấy bối cảnh ở miền Tây Nam Bộ, bộ phim mộc mạc, nhẹ nhàng và man mác buồn như một câu vọng cổ về thân phận những con người cá biệt bị cộng đồng tách ly, kỳ thị.

Hung is an orphan. His parents abandoned him long time ago. He has lived with his uncle Ba since he was a child. Uncle Ba is a clever tailor and he's always kind to others. However, he is discriminated on the grounds of sex because he's gay. People they always tease him and speak against him and Hung family behind his back. Hung feels so lonely. The film was staged in Mekong, it's so simple, gentle and quite upset just like a Vong Co lyric about some specific people who have been isolated and discriminated.
