Vietnam film travels to society’s edge
The highly anticipated film Hotboy Noi Loan va Cau Chuyen ve Thang Cuoi, Co Gai Diem va Con Vit (Lost in Paradise) directed by Vu Ngoc Dang will be released in cinemas in Vietnam tomorrow.
Lost in Paradise boldly depicts the hardships of those living on the fringes of society by telling the story of Khoa, a rural man, who falls into the world of prostitution after being raped by two homosexual men.
Viewers are unsure if Khoa is lucky or unlucky when another gay man named Lam appears to help Khoa escape from his life on the edge.
The film is scheduled to screen at the Busan International Film Festival 2011’s A Window on Asian Cinemaon from today to Thursday.
