HCM CITY — The private film company Thiên Ngân (Galaxy), in co-operation with its partners, has introduced its latest film in hopes of drawing young audiences away from South Korean and American productions that have dominated cinemas this summer.
The new production Vú Em Tập Sự (Babysitters at Work) is a comedy about two thieves who protect a boy from a criminal gang.
"We are not bringing serious educational messages with the film. We hope it can entertain audiences, both children and their parents," said the film’s director Bùi Văn Hải.
The film’s leading roles played by comedian Tiến Luật and Vietnamese-American stuntman and actor Johnny Trí Nguyễn, who has lived in HCM City for more than 10 years.
In the film, Johnny and Luật gain new experiences and try to have a good understanding of the lifestyle of their three-year-old partner, Damian Romme Ly, oldest son of actress Lý Thanh Thảo, by observing the child actor.
Vú Em Tập Sự’s trailer released last week attracted more than 15,000 viewers.
“We promise that our fans will laugh and scream during the film,” said comedian Luật, who plays a thief in the film.
Vú Em Tập Sự will be in cinemas on Friday. — VNS
