The Scent of Green Papaya = Mùi du du xanh
This is a beautiful film set in 1950s Vietnam. It is a simple story of servant girl Mui’s life and love, but its real appeal is the sensuous imagery and elegant camera work that make it a work of art. The film won the Caméra d'Or prize at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival and was shortlisted for the 1993 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
In Vietnamese with English subtitles.
