HÀ NỘI — The long anticipated Vietnamese movie Cô Gái Đến Từ Hôm Qua (The Girl From Yesterday) will hit cinemas on July 21, after soldout sneak previews in recent days.
The movie is adapted from the story of best-selling author Nguyễn Nhật Ánh, famous for his popular books for young adult readers, and directed by Phan Gia Nhật Linh.
Due to increasing demand, more sneak preview tickets have been made available for July 19 and 20.
Directed by Phan Gia Nhật Linh, who directed the 2015 hit Em Là Bà Nội Của Anh (Sweet 20), The Girl From Yesterday features stories of high school crushes and childhood innocence.
“I like the clever, creative storytelling in the movie, which helps to create emotions,” said director Charlie Nguyễn.
Director Hồng Ánh said, “Watching The Girl From Yesterday, one is reminded of one’s days as a student, before Internet was available in Việt Nam.”
The movie also takes audiences back to their childhood with hit music like Vĩnh Biệt Mùa Hè (Goodbye Summertime), Tình Thơ (Romantic Love), Cây Đàn Sinh Viên (Nostalgic Guitar).
Before The Girl From Yesterday, the screen adaptation of Nguyễn Nhật Ánh’s Tôi Thấy Hoa Vàng Trên Cỏ Xanh (Yellow Flowers on the Green Grass) was also a big success with several Vietnamese and international awards, Best Film at the TIFF Kids International Film Festival 2016, the Golden Lotus award at the 19th Việt Nam Film Festival and the Golden Kite award at the Việt Nam Film Festival 2015.
The Girl From Yesterday is being screened at the 21st Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival in South Korea, from July 13 to 23. — VNS
