Year 11 Vietnamese Movie TripEXE
On 9 September 2016, Year 11 Vietnamese Language and Literature classes made their very first field trip of the academic year to BHD Cinema at Vincom Thao Dien. The aim of the trip was to compare and contrast the movie Tam Cam: The Untold Story and the Vietnamese cinderella-like Tam Cam as a post-reading activity of Vietnamese folk tales. The movie itself that gave the audience a feast for the eyes and a treat for the ears.
As one of the students said,
“I was impressed. The sets, especially the scenery is magnificent with professional cinematography using flycams. Words fail me describing the grandness of mountains and palaces. Moreover, the costumes for actresses are respectfully inspired from Vietnamese traditional clothing with some beautifully modernised touches and spices.
It is obvious that Ngo Thanh Van, the director and producer of the movie, was trying to make the best Vietnamese movie of which all Vietnamese can be proud. I hope that the film industry of Vietnam will make more progress in producing movies with modern special effects but also keep the traditions of Vietnam in every movie in the future.” – LE Hoang Minh An, Year 11
