I can't recall the name of the most recent film by the director of Scent of Green Papaya, focusing on the lives of three sisters. To whoever has seen it, what did you make of the ending and the vibe between the youngest sister and her brother?

At the Height of Summer; yes, there is certainly an interesting vibe between sister and brother. I really enjoyed their vitality, spontaneity, didn't ponder too much on any more complex meanings in their relationship- prefer the tinge of mystery about it. The film was beautiful- the colours (all shades of greens and yellows) are gorgeously fresh. Tran Anh Hung is an intelligent, wise, sensitive and extremely talented film-maker, and i look forward to further gems from him. Cyclo was brilliant (delirious and dazzling) but i still prefer At the Height of Summer. It's a little masterpiece.
