The Vertical Ray of the Sun
Mùa hè chiều thẳng đứng
France (FR), Germany (DE), Vietnam, 2000, 112 minutes
One day. Many lives. A family. Lovers. An eternity. A hope. A delay. A secret. Happiness. Lies. One summer.
The Vertical Ray of the Sun Synopsis

Hanoi comes across almost picture-perfect in director Tran Anh Hung's beautiful, elegiac tale about the lives and loves of three Vietnamese sisters. A mood characteristic of Hung's films is set early on with the vivid sounds of birds, insects and water and the way the lighting enhances the subtle use of color. They all combine to gem-like effect here.
