| One of the best movies about the aftermath of the Vietnam War
Buoi Sang Dau Nam is one of those rare films that really capture the human experience of the aftermath of the Vietnam War from a Vietnamese perspective. It won Best Film at San Diego Asian Film Festival and got a standing ovation at UC Davis Asian American Film Festival.

The film truly details the journey and life so many Vietnamese refugees and the wounds that have not yet healed in very personal and meaningful way. The locations, music, and characters in the film resonate with many Vietnamese audiences because it is a world that is familiar, which makes the film so moving and haunting.

Non-Asian audiences may find themselves confused though, but if they let themselves sit with the film, it's a good piece.

I hope to see a lot more work from Victor Vu in the future.
