Un mot de Michelle Gales sur le film :
Ce film est un intéressant et touchant état des lieux dans plusieurs pays au temps du Covid. Vietnam est au centre et les autres pays sont vus à travers le regard d’un
vietnamien. Les allers-venues à travers l’internet semblent parfois une paresse de mise en scène bien que justifié par le role plus important d’internet pendant cette période. Le fil est très intéressant en étant un choix de réalisation différent du meme thème que le film belge “Une Place au Soleil”. Il est aussi en résonance avec le film “Respire, souris, vis.
