In the movie, directed by Chinese director Guo Xiang, Phuong plays Nguyen Thi Hoa, a nurse trying to find love but beset hit by tragedy as she falls in love with American doctor James Marquis (Kazy Tauginas) in the 1930’s French Indochina.

The film is a collaboration of filmmakers in Vietnam, China, and the U.S., with Chair of the Broadcast Journalism department at New York Film Academy, Bill Einreinhofer as executive producer, and a budget of around $500,000, according to IMDb, an online database of information related to films and television programs.

“The subtext of the film is the nature of colonialism, and the corrosive effect it has on both the colonizers as well as those colonized,” Einreinhofer explained.

Vi Kien Thanh, head of the Cinema Department under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, said that “Tinh Yeu Vo Hinh” has been licensed for screening in Vietnam. Producers have said the move will hit domestic giant screens this year.
