4.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful film on human relations, 3 Sept. 2006
This review is from: Vertical Ray of Sun [DVD] [2001] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
A wonderful film by master director Tran Anh Hung who gave us a series of equally well directed productions.

This film is all about human relations blend with wonderful music and an exceptional photography.

The actors took up their roles in a balanced way with each one able to show his/her best while at the same time to complement each other in a harmony of acting.

The music is spectacular combining well-chosen western music and Vietnamese.

It is of a particular importance to notice the sound of this film. Background sounds and effects strengthened by splendid photography make the viewer to feel the heat of the tropics, the rain and humidity and the coolness of the garden of the backyard.

But the most important aspect is the human relation, all presented for what they are in real life. While able to strengthen the virtues of fidelity does not condemn infidelity, while praising family ties and values does not shy away from questioning believes.

The photography is superb with the director of photography able to capture the sun, the bight areas and combine them perfectly with shades.

The contrast of the clean spotless dresses in bright colours with the run down walls of a city in the tropics is something one can notice and appreciate.

The collection of small details of the daily life that could have gone unnoticed become through the photography part of the beauty of this film.

The music is acting also as a tool of symbolism and one must pay attention to the beautiful group singing.
