Trailer for “Lý Công Uẩn: The Road to Thăng Long Citadel”

Here is the trailer for the upcoming motion picture Lý Công Uẩn: Đường tới thành Thăng Long (Lý Công Uẩn: The Road to Thăng Long Citdel).  Notice the absence of anything even remotely Vietnamese in this movie, except for maybe the language.  The clothing is Chinese, the architecture is Chinese, and almost everything else is Chinese.  If you have ever seen a Chinese historical drama, you would know exactly what I mean.

I am not criticizing the quality of the movie, because this is obviously a big budget production.  It looks like both Hanoi and Beijing, mostly Beijing, are sinking enormous effort into this movie ($100 billion Vietnamese).  They can’t expect to brainwash the population with cheap production values, can they?

Here is the trailer for Lý Công Uẩn: The Road to Thăng Long Citadel.  It is in Vietnamese, so don’t worry if you don’t understand.

Enjoy!
