Father and Son
Luong Dinh Dung
Vietnam, 2017, 90 min.
In Vietnamese with English subtitles.
This film is family friendly.
Ca is a young boy who lives with his father in a mountainous area. Ca dreams of reaching the nest of what he thought is a huge bird in the sky (which is actually an airplane) and climbing to the top of the tallest building in an unknown city. Suddenly, Ca contracts a disease that seems to threaten his life. Hence, the father and son start their journey to the city.
The story about Father and Son is told in idyllic way. Father and Son is an art movie with different spheres of emotions. The flow of the story confides my inherent feelings, at the same time of my own way of filmography. I believe the filmography style that follows emotions exposed in Father and Son is the distinguished feature that convinces the audience. All the cast except the girl named Xam and a grandfather of a sick boy have not studied any classes or courses of acting, and some of them are indigenous people. This will make the story more convincing. Besides, I choose to shoot the real rain-flooding situation in the northern mountainous area to make the story as actual as possible.
