A Glorious Time in Me Thao Hamlet

A wealthy Vietnamese landowner of a hundred years past buys a car for his bride, then goes mad when she's killed in a crash. When he bans modern machines from his estate, increasing the suffering of his vassals, a musician he's rescued decides that a singer from Hanoi might be able to help. Nguyen Viet Linh's 2002 film suffers from disjointed editing, but it offers a compelling portrait of the near-feudal conditions of its period and of a rich man whose self-indulgent emotional life is denied his hardworking peasants. And the classical Vietnamese music heard at beginning and end is spectacularly complex. In Vietnamese with subtitles. 104 min.
