Gai Nhay portrays the reality of many young girls in Vietnam. It’s all about sex, money and survival. The film takes viewers into the dark and corrupted reality part of the Vietnamese society. Young girls were getting jacked, busted, and fucked. The film shows the life of the Bar Girls drinking, snoring, sniffing and vomiting afterward. Not only they had to deal with all the shit from the clients but their pimp as well. On top of that they had to battle with AIDS/HIV. I was surprised this film was allowed to screen in Ho Chi Minh City. They usually wouldn’t allow this kind of film to be show to the public. This film might be the birth of the Vietnamese’s movie industry. Although the cinematographic of this film is very poor, the storyline is real. Highly recommended.
