"The Scent of Green Papaya"
Directed by Tran Anh Hung
Shot entirely on a
Paris soundstage, this, says critic Roger Ebert, "is a film to cherish."
From the director of "Cyclo", this moving and undeniably brilliant film by the
talented Vietnamese-exile filmmaker Tran Anh Hung is set in 1951. A young woman
enters a life of servitude, working for a wealthy family. The film follows in exquisitely
lyrical detail the quiet beauty and stoically accepted hardships of her life as, ten years
later, she starts a love affair with her next employer. Vietnamese with English
