Hallyu World’s host, Hyesoo, met with the producer and cast of Co Ba Saigon (The Tailor) – the hottest Vietnamese movie debuted at 22nd Busan International Film Festival (BIFF).
Being compared as the Vietnamese version of the Devil wears Prada, the movie is a romantic comedy about Vietnamese women in 1960s, featuring the vibrant fashion culture and lifestyle of Saigonese. The history of Ao Dai also plays an important part in the movie. This is indeed a rare movie from the modern Vietnamese filmmakers with an ambition to revive the traditional culture with such national symbolic feature.
In “The Tailor,” the vibrant fashion world of Saigon meets the Ao Dai, the traditional Vietnamese dress, in a movie that criss-crosses 48 years from 1969 to 2017. Arrogant Nhu Y is the daughter of a famous Ao Dai designer in Saigon, but is also only interested in western outfits, so she ignores the traditional dress. One day, she accidentally shifts in time to the future, becoming someone very different. Meanwhile, her mother’s tailor has become the best designer in Vietnam. The film shows the process of Nhu Y’s transformation, from opening her eyes to the beauty of the Ao Dai in the future, to rebuilding the ruined family business.
Co Ba Saigon (The Tailor) is co-directed by Ngo Thanh Van – Veronica Ngo, the multi-talented producer who has also acted in some Hollywood blockbusters, including Bright which also features Will Smith, Joel Edgerton and Edgar Ramirez; and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny together with Michelle Yeoh, Donnie Yen and Jason Scott Lee. Van also plays a Resistance gunner in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, scheduled to premiere soon.
During the interview, this Vietnamese movie star and producer revealed her ambition to bring back traditional culture through this movie.
