The Happiness of Mother

Huynh Dong/ Vietnam/ 2019/ 87 min

The Happiness of Mother depicts the story of a widow with an autistic son. Tue’s love for her boy, Tim, is rivaled only by Giang, a close friend who pursues the single mother with total devotion. Yet, she can only think of how to protect the child, especially after learning she is terminally ill. When a television producer offers to showcase the mother-son pair to boost ratings, Tue questions how much the public should know about their situation. What is the difference between entertainment and exploitation? Directed by Huynh Thi Thang with an unforgettable cast, the movie reminds us the love of a mother is never an act. - Long Bui
