Co Ba Sai Gon (2017) Online

The re-enactment of the long dress (ao dai) era in 1960s, Saogon, thought to be the heyday of traditional Vietnamese costumes. Interwoven into that transformation in fashion and style of the ao dai in modern times told through the story of the character of Ba. Audiences will also see somewhere the image of the 60s, 70s full of honest women. An image of Saigon in the past, gentle and steeped in contrast to the rush of a dynamic city will be described by fashion, namely long dress - traditional costumes in Vietnam. All of them are cleverly nested in the story between two families, between mothers and their children, between a tailor and a fabric shop filled with dramatic rage.

Editing and story-line is great. Acting is generally good. Vietnamese culture and tradition is displayed well. Recommended!


This movie is an unholy hybrid of 'Back to the Future' crossed with 'The Devil Wore Prada'. Unfortunately, that may make it sound more interesting than it really is. Our lead is the heiress to a leading fashion house in Saigon, which specializes in the traditional Vietnamese dresses, the Ao Dai. But she is a spoiled brat who wants to imitate Western fashions. She is magically thrown into 2017, where her family business is long gone, and her own rebellious fashion ideas are now passé.

If you're a fan of Hong Kong comedies of the 1990s, you may like this movie a lot better than I did. Overacting, exaggerated physical movements, one dimensional characters, this movie shovels it on. It got a little less dire after the jump to 2017, but it never got actually good.

For me, a bizarre aspect of the film is how it pretends there was no history going on. No mention of the Vietnamese War at all. No Communism. For instance, at one point, the characters specifically talk about Saigon in 1975, and there was no mention of the fall of Saigon. I guess fashion is just a world apart from the one in which the rest of us live.
