ON SET IN VIET­NAM

Oi Vietnam - - Contents -

Viet­nam’s young film in­dus­try is start­ing to ma­ture with its own home­grown tal­ents of direc­tors, ac­tors and movies

In the early 2000s, mak­ing a list of top gross­ing Viet­namese movies would be a laugh­able (like the movie genre that dom­i­nates the lo­cal mar­ket) idea. The lo­cal box oce back then was com­pletely dom­i­nated by Hol­ly­wood block­busters, and some­times Korean and Chi­nese films, leav­ing a very small win­dow for a small num­ber of home­made pro­duc­tions. But things have be­gun to change in re­cent times; the lo­cal film in­dus­try ap­pears to have come of age, re­leas­ing hit af­ter hit that have forced even the most scep­ti­cal of fans to change their mind to sit down and watch.
