Noodle Soup (Pho)

Synopsis

Uyen travels to Vietnam for the first time in 20 years to see her country and her people. This film about her search for identity is both visually stunning and profoundly moving as Uyen comes to recognise that her Vietnamese identity has been suppressed by her struggle to integrate in the western world.
