Vietnamese beauty: Tran Nu Yên-Khê

Tran Nu Yen-Khe

Yesterday my recent fascination with Vietnam made me watch the film Vertical Ray of the Sun (2000) which I bought in Saigon for only 70 cents. I think the film was too pretentious and too slow, but the scenery and cinematography were absolutely great! And so were some of the women! Tran Nu Yên-Khê was the one that really made it all worth while for me.She was born in 1968 in Anxiuan, Vietnam and also starred in Cyclo and The Scent of the Green Papaya. Not very strange, as she is married to the director Anh Hung Tran 😉 I Will have to watch these two films!

  1. Cyclo is an amazing but harrowing experience, but The Scent of Green Papaya was a bit too much of a ‘critic ‘s film’ for my taste, if you know what I mean.

  2. I have seen all three and they are wonderful films to watch. The imagery is the true value. You will see the same actors in all three films. Vertical Ray of the Sun is better the second time you watch it. Cyclo is not as slow as the other two but is grittier. All are great movies to see insight of VietNam but Scent of Green Papaya was filmed in Paris on a sound stage. Anh Hung Tran is vietnamese but was raised in France. His movies are constructed as he goes. Each scene is laid out with the imagery and composition carefully, like a still photo. They are indeed beautiful films.

  3. humm.. vietnamese girl only few of them who pretty.. they parents should mix 1st hahahaha….

    Indonesian girl were still the best 😀

  4. Well daejaquack, if you don’t think Vietnamese girls are pretty then you obviously haven’t met many of them. While I admit Tran Nu Yên-Khê is not especially pretty, overall I believe Vietnamese are the most beautiful women in the world. For you to say they are ‘ugly’ shows you know nothing about them, and are in no position to comment on them.

  5. This woman is absolutely beautiful. I just wrote to asian sirens right now to suggest a post on this precious gem. I guess I was a couple of years too late.

    I’ve just come under the facination of Tran Anh Hung films and his wife most importantly. She really really really does it for me. My god. Tran Nu Yen Khe might be the most beautiful woman I’ve seen. Her husband is quite a lucky man. I’m jealous man.
