Thursday Outdoor Cinema: Fanatic (Fan Cuồng)


Movie: Fan Cuong

Before the current hit “Em chưa 18/Jailbait” that is blowing up the box office, there was “Fan cuồng/Fanatic”. The film will start at 8:30 sharp, followed by Q&A by Fan Cuong’s movie director Charlie Nguyen & producer Jenni Trang Le .

“Fan Cuong”, a co-production of Chanh Phuong, HKFilm and other local producers, was the exciting followup to the dynamic trio – actors Thái Hòa, Johnny Trí Nguyễn and director Charlie Nguyễn from the box office smash hit “Tèo Em”.

Directed by Charlie Nguyễn, who is popular among Vietnamese audiences for his comedy films, such as Để Mai Tính (Fool for Love), Cưới Ngay Kẻo Lỡ (Love Puzzle) and Tèo Em (Little Tèo), the movie follows a devoted rock fan who struggles to revive the past glory of the fading rock music scene.

Set in the 90s, it sees a fan, Thái “Rocker”, travel back through time to HCM City to meet Gia Nghị, the leader of his favourite band Sexy Beast and breakup the love between him and Mỹ Kỳ, the woman responsible for Sexy Beast’s eventual downfall (very Yoko-esque).

“The drama comedy is a combination of space travel, spatial romance and fantasy factors,” said Charlie.
