Synopsis

In 1951 Saigon, 10 year-old Mui enters household service for an affluent, troubled family. As she comes of age, Mui finds her relationship with a pianist she has admired since childhood growing in complexity. Antebellum Vietnam is recreated through a child’s eyes and the deep blush of first love.

MUBI's take

Vietnamese auteur Tran Anh Hung (Norwegian Wood) made one of the most enduring art-house hits of the 90s. Garnering the Camera d’Or at Cannes, a César for Best First Feature, and a Foreign Film Oscar nod, this exquisitely shot family drama makes poignant observations.
