The first Vietnamese film to be nominated for an Oscar, and the winner of two top prizes at the Venice Film Festival, CYCLO tells the tale of a bicycle-taxi driver in Ho Chi Minh City who becomes entangled in a world of drugs and crime. The Chicago Reader’s Jonathan Rosenbaum called it, “a visionary piece of work, shot through with passion and poetry.”
