I was thinking of getting this movie....but maybe not.  The thing that I think Viet actors (both overseas and in VN) need to improve is their ways of talking.  Although they sound better now, but they still sound pretty stiff and appear as if they're reading the books or poems instead of acting their roles.  Even the people that dub chinese or korean series sound more natural than them.

I agree! The scripts are made for reading not speaking.

All good points.  Since you watched the movie, that means you want to support our Vietnamese film industry.  If so, what do you think we can do to improve our Viet films?  The movie is cheap because it doesn't cost millions to make.  Our film industry is starving and need our helps.  If we all chip in and buy the movie, our contributions will go a long way.  What do you all know about film making?  Do you know how much (work, time, people and money) it takes to get one movie out there for our Viet community?  It's so easy to criticize and to compare our Viet films to the all powerful Hollywood.  Remember, our people came along way to be here.  We've struggled, suffered and overcame so much to finally reach a point where we're comfortable to express ourselves.  Through films, we'll share to the world the Vietnamese stories, journey, culture and people.  We're more than just a war.  It's time the world need to see our people through a new set of eyes.  If you agree with me that there's a need to strengthen our Viet film industry, please, by all means, do something about it, support Victor Vu and anyone who are at least trying to make a difference.

i agree with you it's not easy to porduce a movie, it cost alot, takes time from thinking up storyline, casting a cast, fidning a location, shooting it, edit it, and then release it to the public it's not all in a day of work.
Yes we can compare ourself to the Hollywood because will it's there land so they have more money and power. we have struggled and suffers and came such a long way to get to where we are rite now, but storyline is not that intresting, and just the acting between the actors/actress is not smooth, it just seem like they're read it. there's not emotion put in and thier not comforable.

Thanks for responding to my comments.  You've brought up a few good points about our Viet film industry.  First of all, besides Kieu Chinh, we don't have many trained and experienced actors/actresses.  Some actors/actresses are blessed with the natural gift of acting and most require many hours or years of training and performing to perfect their delivery (smoothly and naturally) on screen.  Since we don't have a true Viet film industry, finding people who studied and trained in acting is rare and not an easy task.  In a low budget production, you can only pay for what you can afford.  Since time is money, there's not much time spent on coaching or preparing these actors/actresses for their individual role.  There's so much that a director can do to bring the story together and make it as flawless as possible.  Talent without proper guidance/training is pretty much a waste.  I believe there are so many talented people in the Viet community.  For those who want to pursue acting as a career, first there got be an industry in our community to provide them with this type of work.  Since there's not one in our Viet community (outside VN), then we just have to deal with the not good enough acting from our amateurs or wannabes.  This also extended to the quality of work done by our writers, movie makers and directors. It's not as easy as we think.  Financial supports or investments for building a Viet film industry will definitely improve the quality of our films.  All casts involve will get proper coaching or training in acting, writing, directing, movie editing and etc....In no time we'll enjoy many well made films from our Viet community.  If the Vietnamese community willing to put out, then we shall receive in due time.  For now, we need to focus on ways to support this cause if we want quality from our fellow Viet film makers.  This is the time and there are endless Viet stories waiting to be told through motion pictures.  Please help spread the words to support our community.  Keep buying Viet films.  Thanks for reading.

Hey Viet Film Now.
yes u've brought up a very good point and i agree with you on that, casing and then coaching each actor/actress with thier role is not easy, in fact it's very hard. teadching them is one thing and learning is another thing. i've took drama for a while and it's not easy acting and getting people to understand what the role is about...but sometime i think they should try a bit harder to express it out...if ur mad/angry try to express it, like face expression, riase ur tone of voice, if ur happy smile, laugh, sad cry it keeps the story going ad intresting. For me when i watch the first 5-10 mins. of The Gioi Huyen Bi i was bored becasue the acting was stiff that i had to turn it off, But i did kinda made myself watch the whole thing, i have to be very honest i was very bored and mad after watching, becuase the acting was stiff, i hate the scene where Lan came into the casino to look for her husband telling him she want a devorce and he got mad blah blah it doesnt seem real beucsae the face express does not change one bit.
overall i mean i my sound hrush and waht not but i still buoght the movie becsue like u say viet movie industry need support to get to the next leavel. so i've show my support and im giving my input for later improvment.

Andy Con Ca,

I'm glad that you initiated this thread.  You have done it, thank you for your honest and constructive review of this film (The Gioi Huyen Bi-Episode I); that's all I am asking for.  Hope you finished watching the movie and give us your overall opinion of the film.  Let's not nitpick on things we don't like.  Why not grade it on a scale of 1-10 (where 1 is 'poor' and 10 is 'highly recommended')? Also, provide your rational or justification for your score.  This way people will give your review more credibility and acknowledge your true intension in supporting our Viet film.  Below is my scores for the film.
Storyline - 6 (script need to be less for reading and more for conversional purposes; characters not fully developed; story lack originality; rather cliche'-pregnacy,ghosts, blood and reincarnation-seen before in both Hong Kong and Hollywood films)
Directing - 6 (still need to work on actor's expression and interaction between characters; actors seem to be rushed; flow of the film is too slow at time and too rushed when need to capture the emotional state of the character; it seems as if the director is playing it safe; movie lack appeals - needs some humors or charms to make it more human and not too rigid, characters are one dimensional-one emotional state and lack dynamic)
Acting - 6 (nonverbal and verbal communication between characters need to be more natural, more real and more believable that they're friends, family or lovers; the main actor and actress did what they need to do for their one dimenional character - there's still room for improvement; overall, for amateurs, great efforts)

Overall, I gave this film a score of 6 for efforts and mostly because the cinematography has somewhat improved since Oan Hon.  Honestly, I watched this movie because I want to continue to support our Viet film.  There are plenty of films out there in this genre (horor) that will definitely blow this one away.

Words to the director:  It's about time to take it to the next level, your fans are growing weary and may not be too forgiving if you're playing it safe.  You need to interact with your actors/actresses more and maybe ask for their inputs.  Hope you give them rooms to improvise, sticking to the script could be a total drag.  Keep it real and make it believable!

SOTRYLINE: i give this a 5 1/2 becuase of repeated story about ghost that i've seen way to much to the point where i doesnt scare me anymore. need to foucs on other things, such as the world what's going on rite now..use that as the base of the story, personal life, love story, fantasy world. something new.

DRICTICING: 5: need to work with each role of a better understand, spend more time with the work then the quaitly well come out, no need to rush becuase it'll make the actors/actress more stress out, make sure they are comforable with role. do a run thru before shootting the real thing. It's to SAFE...take a risk go out side the box...

ACTING: need more work..actors/actress should really spend time with their role and get into it..be that person. so we can see when ur mad, sad, happy, depress,it'll show. geting all the lines down does not help. in other words kinda be one with that ROLE.

PS: DRICTOR CAN ALL WAY OPEN THE DOOR FOR AUDITION, THERE MIGHT BE TALENT OUT THERE WHO CAN HELP IMPROVED OUR MOVIES, BUT DONT HAVE THE CHANCE TO SHOW IT, NOR DO THEY HAVE TO CONNECTION WITH THE INDUSTRY TO GET THEM THORU THE DOOR. I SAY OPEN UP AN AUDITION AND HOPE FOR THE BEST.

ALSO THIS MOVIE WAS AN IMPROVE SINCE OAN HON RELEASE..JUST KEEP IT UP

I want to see a Viet film that's not about the war (I'll poke my eyes out if I see another one) or involved with ghost/supernatural stuff. Are all these Viet horror films by the same guy? Sorry, I haven't checked any of them out cus they just look bad from the trailers. I hope I'm not offending anyone by saying this, but I don't we're open-minded enough for film, at not there right now yet. And yes, Viet actors are so stiff. The people who dub TVB series sound more convincing than them, which is kind of sad. I'm risking with my next statement but what the ****, we aren't exactly the artistically inclined community either. Just look at hardcore Viet Asia productions. Okay, now I better run. =p

I never find Korean storylines and their actors to be that great. They just have better resources. When I think of raw acting talents (from the other side of the globe), I see Sean Lau (Amy Kwok's husband), Tony Leung, Leslie Cheung, Gong Li.

It was an open audition for Episode 1.  It was posted on VNCR and other media.  Oh well.  Maybe next time, more people will be aware and show up for Episode 2 audition.  We can all say/bash that Vietnamese films are lame and actors are stiff and all that but the situations will not improve if we turn our back on them.  Hopefully, they will get better as they make more films.

Hey Viet film makers!
Hope you don't get me wrong, just because I gave this Episode low rating, that doesn't mean I don't support you (Viet film makers) in their efforts.  Excuse my harsh opinion of the film, I only intended to provide feedback for later improvement.  Hope everyone is openminded and respect that we are all entitled to our own opinion.  If it doesn't kill us, it'll only make us stronger.
Be tough and keep it up!  I haven't given up on you yet.  Keep making films and I'll keep supporting until our Viet Industry made it big in this world.  Until then, I got your back! 


Hey Morpheus!  We need to take the red pill, let's see how deep the rabbit hole goes?  Are we searching for the ONE or is it the ANSWER that we're looking for? The truth must be heard!  They will not have us no more! They can not tell us who we are.  We must realize the truth and free our mind! The door has been shown, when the mind is ready, we shall walk through it?  Silence no more!
