Top Vietnamese stars to travel to Bangkok Film Festival
The cast of the award winning Vietnamese film The Rebel are to attend the Bangkok International Film festival in July.

The film, which has been highly acclaimed with its strong story line and classy filming is one of the movies tipped to do well in the ASEAN category at the festival. On its premier showing in Vietnam it outstripped US film “The Marine” in terms of audience viewings by a large margin.

Set in the Vietnam of the 1920’s the drama centers on the life of a Vietnamese student returning to his homeland from his studies in France. The main character, Cuong, is played by Vietnamese – American Johnny Tri Nguyen, who includes in his CV, stuntman on Spiderman 1 and 2. In his more down to earth role as Cuong, he is persuaded to carry out a special mission for a French colonialist. On his mission he meets Thuy, played by the stunning actress Ngo Thanh Van, whose career has rocketed from fashion model to teenage pop idol, and now to major Asian movie star.  Her appearance in Bangkok is certain to cause a stir, as will the rest of this talented collection of movie stars.
Speaking from California, executive producer, Tawny Nguyen, said, “ On behalf of the cast of The Rebel,  it will be an honor to come to the Bangkok Film Festival” and  all movie fans will look forward to seeing the stars in Bangkok. There’s no doubt Vietnam is becoming a strong force in Asian cinema, and The Rebel will be one film not to miss.

The Bangkok International Film Festival runs from 19th July, with its opening night razzmatazz, through to the 29th July when the latest production from Thailand’s Five Star studios closes the festival.  SF Cinema World hosts the event.
