Dang DiPhan directs a film that focuses on the difficulties relationships pose,particularly when age difference becomes a factor, & the connection betweenfood, sex, & love. One of the first things one will notice is that the felineelement is quite intense, not only for the many cats Van keeps in her smallapartment, but also because both actors, Lanh Thanh as Thang & Ngoc Anh asVan, also look lượt thích cats in a way, with the latter also moving và occasionallyconducting herself lượt thích one, including within her relationship with him. However,as we watch this rather unequal relationship of two characters that nói qua veryfew common traits unfolding, it is soon revealed that the focus is not oncontext but on the visuals & the overall style. It is in that regard that theepisode truly thrives, since Dang Di Phan seems lớn have taken care of everylittle detail.

In that fashion, Pham quang Minh’s stylized cinematography applies lớn all aspects of the film. From the framing of the two characters including the sex scenes, khổng lồ the scenes in the boat, to lớn the glass on Van’s floor that allows the people who live in the apartment khổng lồ look at the street below and vice versa, và finally, lớn the food, everything seems to lớn highlight the artistry of the visuals


Lastly, the movie also focuses on some rather unusual và extreme dishes, such as the poisonous fugu, with this part giving a surrealistic & a bit delirious essence lớn the film, adding lớn the entertainment it offers.

“He Serves Fish, She Eats Flowers” is a true eye-candy & a film that everyone will enjoy watching.
