Some of the reviews for this movie:

“Sweeping epic...” TORONTO LIFE MAGAZINE

“a languid, luscious movie...[featuring] a coterie of Vietnamese movie stars, a delicate and emotive score

by world-class composers Alex Pauk and Alexina Louie...united by the sumptuous cinematography of

Mikhail Petrenko..." LIVE WITH CULTURE

The film captures some of the most breathtaking images of Vietnam making each frame absolutely

postcard worthy gorgeous to watch... For those who enjoy a rich and intellectually stimulating moviegoing

experience, look no further.” 8ASIANS BLOGSPOT

“Pearls of the Far East was a true treasure of this year’s festival and will stay fondly in memory for a

long time to come.” MOVIEMOXIE
