Vientiane in Love is the first Lao omnibus film delving into different aspects of love as shown through five separate stories: Mon, a professional photographer falls in love for the first time; Noy, a fisherman’s daughter, escapes from her father in order to pursue her so called “happiness;” Ray, a singer who gives an unforgettable surprise to his ex-girlfriend; Ninda, a business woman who suspects her husband is having an affair and the young woman whom later becomes part of Ninda’s revenge plan; and Luck, a young girl who is caught at a fancy restaurant with a middle-aged American tourist. These love stories in Laos’ capital city reflect nuanced and non-typical relationships, complete with romance, heartbreak, and even humor.
