One of the great classics of Vietnamese cinema. Filmed in Hanoi amidst the smoke and rubble of the actual 1972 Christmas bombardment.
After the American B-52 bombing of Kham Thien Street and Bach Mai hospital, little Ngoc Ha’s family is shattered. Her mother has died trying to save children in a kindergarten, her seriously-injured younger sister is brought to a hospital, and Ngoc Ha encounters a variety of strangers as she wanders the war-torn streets of Hanoi looking for her father.
Little Girl of Hanoi is one of the most remarkable movies ever made anywhere during wartime. Full of exquisite and startling images. In the words of film critic Jonathan Rosenbaum, “the film is remarkable not only for its sincerity and emotional directness, but for its accomplished visual style.”
