HBSO offers two concerts of film music

8pm, July 16-17
Saigon Opera House
7 Cong Truong Lam Son, Ben Nghe, District 1, HCM City
From Elton John to Shostakovich – the range of composers who have written music for films is enormous. If you want to sample this range, the HBSO’s two concerts on Saturday and Sunday, July 16 and 17, are an ideal opportunity.
The fact that there are two concerts rather than one suggests the HBSO anticipates considerable interest, and Meritorious Artist Tran Vuong Thach on the podium is a sure sign of the importance of the events.

The Gadfly is a Russian film from 1955 with music by Shostakovich. It tells the story of an attempted uprising by Italians against their Austrian occupiers in the 19th century led by “the Gadfly”, the illegitimate son of a Catholic priest. Gadflies are biting insects that attack animals, especially horses.

Among the other films featured in the program are Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Lion King, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Hedwig’s theme), the James Bond movie Sky Fall, and Gladiator.

Many items are in special arrangements by HBSO’s Nguyen Manh Duy Linh.

Two other films to appear among the total of 19 items are Mission: Impossible and Once Upon a Time in America.

Prominent vocalists to appear will be Pham Duyen Huyen, Dao Mac, Phan Hong Diu, Hoang Ngoc Anh Quan, Pham Trang, and Pham Khanh Ngoc. The final item, from The Lion King, will feature four soloists from the above list.

Doan Huy An will also appear as a solo trumpeter in an item from the movie Notting Hill.

Mulan was a controversial film about a Chinese woman who disguises herself as a man in order to fight for a cause in which her father had suffered. It is represented in these concerts by an instrumental suite.

Another film with an oriental theme is Aladdin. This time the concerts feature a duet sung by Dao Mac and Pham Duyen Huyen.

House of Flying Daggers contains a lot of music – it is as much a love story as a martial arts movie. In Saigon we will hear an item sung by Pham Khanh Ngoc.

Bryan Adams’s Everything I do I do it for You is the main theme in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. It will be sung by Tran Duy Linh.

Finally, Ronin was an American action/adventure movie renowned for its car chases, with the song Time to Say Goodbye featuring prominently. This will be sung by Pham Khanh Ngoc and Tran Duy Linh.

The importance of film music is that it is the music of our era’s most prominent and important dramatic form. Live theatre reaches far fewer people, and furthermore it’s transient – after the last performance it is largely forgotten, together with its music. Film. by contrast, frequently enjoys a second life on television, not to mention the vast possibilities of YouTube.

Tickets range from VND550,000 to VND1,000,000, with a special price of VND150,000 for students.

Exhibition “Impermanence”

10 June – 24 July 2022

Vin Gallery, 35/8 Nguyen Van Dau, Ward 6, Binh Thanh District, HCMC

This year, Karine Guillermin will be presenting her recent works. Impermanence invites you to hear the silence and seek conversation with yourself.

Impermanence is an invitation to understand your mind. Taming is sometimes the same as finding freedom. Hear the sound of silence in your thoughts. Seek a conversation with yourself. A monologue is personal, impersonal and temporal. It is beyond visual perception where time does not matter.

In this series of her new work, Karine Guillermin explores the space to its limit. She manages to use every corner and gap across tiles through the walls. The arrangement has mesmerised our visuals with the details she displays.

Exhibition ” Dept. of Speculation”

Until Aug 20,
Tues – Sat, and by appointment, 10 am – 07 pm
Galerie Quynh, 118 Nguyen Van Thu, Da Kao Ward, District 1

Galerie Quynh is pleased to present ‘Dept. of Speculation’ — a group exhibition featuring new and recent projects by Nghĩa Đặng, Nadège David, Đỗ Thanh Lãng, Cian Duggan, Ngô Đình Bảo Châu, Trúc-Anh and Võ Trân Châu.

‘Dept. of Speculation’ is a non-hierarchical agency that materialises and thrives only in the realm of thoughts and possibilities. Its existence was unknown to many including its members — the speculators, until recently. Just as the speculators attempt to make sense of what is happening in their lives, the department begins to take form. The department functions on a conjectural, pseudo-scientific premise: ideas about time and space as we know them are subject to the speculators’ very own empirical and personal reconfigurations. 

Photo exhibition highlights beauty of Spratly Archipelago

Until Jul 18,

122 Suong Nguyet Anh Street, District 1, HCM City

The Spratly Archipelago and the life of the soldiers there are captured in a photo exhibition by artist Doan Hoai Trung in HCM City.

Danish Film Week 2022


Jul 8 – 13, CineStar, 135 Hai Ba Trung Street, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City

Jul 9 – 14, National Cinema Center, 87 Lang Ha Street, Ba Dinh District, Hanoi

‘The Good Traitor’, ‘The Purity of Vengeance’, ‘That Time of Year’, ‘A Perfectly Normal Family’, ‘Daniel’ and ‘Land of Mine’ represent the high quality of Danish film production within recent years. They have all won several awards and nominations at Danish and international prestigious film festivals.

The selected film collection this year will give local audiences a glimpse of the Danish society and life. The narratives of the films are captivating and varied. For example, ‘The Good Traitor’ poses an ethical and personal judgment issue: should one do what he is asked to do in his position or follow his own judgment – even if this action can destroy his career and put him in prison.

‘Daniel’ will take audiences through the heart-breaking and desperate times that Daniel and his family had to go through in the attempt to free him from the capture of ISIS in Syria. Local audiences will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in various life stories, but will also leave the cinema halls with optimistic and hopeful notes and messages.

All films are with Vietnamese and English subtitles. Some are with age limits. Tickets are free and can be collected from 22th June 2022 for Hue and Da Nang and from 24th June for Hanoi and HCM city at the following venues:
