Best Vietnamese films on netflix you should not miss
Mắt Biếc (Dreamy Eyes)
The inspiration of this film came from the work of a famous writer in Vietnam- Nguyen Nhat Anh. It is about Ngạn’s unconditional love for Ha Lan, a close friend who possesses admiringly “dreamy eyes” yet a stubborn personality.
This love story is filled with many emotions, containing childish humor in pure love when they were childhood friends and then getting through many challenges later in their adulthood. However, the couple of friends slowly fell apart as Ha Lan became carried away with the city’s splendor and love affairs.
The story became even more complicated when Tra Long, Ha Lan’s daughter, grew up and rekindled her love for him. While watching it, you have the chance of seeing many beautiful scenes of Vietnam with mesmerizing music, which makes this love story strangely nostalgic yet heart-breaking when you realize how much you can relate to it.
Bố già (Dad, I’m sorry)- one of the most touching Vietnamese films on Youtube that’s ever been made
Bố già may be one of the most impressive Vietnamese films on youtube in the late 2020 considered by many people. It is a simple story about a family living in a poor working-class neighborhood in Ho Chi Minh City.
The main character is Sang, who is a single father raising two children, Quắn and Bù Tọt on his own. Another main character is his first child, the 20-year-old son Quắn, who has the hobby of making money from YouTube.
Contrary to his frugal father, Quan tends to be reckless and impulsive, and easily spends his money on anything he likes. There are a lot more differences between those two as Quan grows up. For instance, Quan is always pursuing a carefree and independent life, while his dad is all about taking care of others, that sometimes he forgets to take care of his own well-being.
Despite their sincere love for each other, the generation gap has resulted in father-son conflicts. Viewers can find a lot of things in common with either the son or the dad, not to mention some of the film’s scenes are very likely to happen once in any household in Vietnam.
Thus, Bố già is one of the movies we highly recommend if you are a fan of the family movie genre.
