Saigon by Herself

7 years, 9 months ago at Nov 1 15:30

Whether the luxury and dissipation in the life at colony, or the inebriation of exotic amour boucing in the vernal breeze, even the nightmare of warfare which lingers on and on, Saigon is still as herself as ever.With the tumult accompanied by the dense moisture, it's a cradle gave birth to love and wish, sheding the departure and grief which all became a metropolis full of recollections.... read more

It is French Colonial Vietnam in 1929. A young French girl from a family that is having some monetary difficulties is returning to boarding school. She is alone on public transportation when she catches the eye of a wealthy Chinese businessman. He offers her a ride into town in the back of his chauffeured sedan, and sparks fly. Can the torrid affair that ensues between them overcome the class restrictions and social mores of that time? Based on the semi-autobiographical novel by Marguerite Duras

"L’amant - Marguerite Duras “Je lui dis que je suis dans une tristesse que j’attendais et qui ne vient que de moi. Que toujours j’ai été triste. Que je vois cette tristesse aussi sur les photos où je suis toute petite. Qu’aujourd’hui cette tristesse, tout en la reconnaissant comme étant celle que j’ai toujours eue, je pourrais presque lui donner mon nom tellement elle me ressemble.” "
