Summary of Audio Interview

The Voice of Vietnam Radio had an interview between reporter Vu Pham Yen and Director of the film "Owl and the sparrow" by Stephan Gauge. Stephan Gauge is a Vietnamese American. He is very successful in producing this emotional film, which illustrated three person's lonely souls longing to be loved. Thuy, an honest and orphaned ten-year-old girl ran away from her unloving uncle whom forced her to work in his factory to find a better living in Sai Gon. She earns a living by selling roses along the streets and sleeps on the roadside night after night. Her fate led her to play a matchmaker to two of her customers. Hai is a young and poor zookeeper and Thuy is a young and beautiful flight attendant.

Although the three of them came from different social classes, but they have one thing in common and that is a yearning for love and a happy family. The movie also presents to American audiences about the Vietnamese culture in Sai Gon. From the movie, the American audience can imagine the lively and bustling of the modern city where there are still poor and poverty-stricken people trying their best to survive. The expenditures are very low and the time of the film is very short but it is inspiring to the audience because of the plot of the film concerning primarily with humans, their values, and achievements.
