ON SET IN VIETNAM
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 oce 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.
