Distributed by 3388 Films, a film production, post-production, and distribution company in California, The Last Wife will be shown at the Praha Flora and Praha Chodov cinemas located in the Atrium Flora and Westfield Chodov shopping centers in Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic.
In December, 3388 Films premiered this film in Canada and the United States, and it is currently still being shown in Vietnam.
The Last Wife is a story about Vietnamese women during the Nguyen Dynasty in the 19th century.
The film follows the life of a young woman, portrayed by Kaity Nguyen, who comes from a poor family in the semi-feudal colonial society of Vietnam. Love, betrayal, and social and family issues are major themes in the movie.
In mid-November, 3388 Films also presented another Vietnamese film in theaters in the United States.
Live – Phát Trực Tiếp, directed by Khuong Ngoc, captivated Western audiences during its sold-out North America premiere as the official Vietnamese Spotlight Film of the 2023 Newport Beach Film Festival.
The movie vividly portrays the hyper-competitive world of live-streaming mukbangers and online reviewers in Vietnam.
Although the film did not generate high revenue in Vietnam, it received positive reviews from Western audiences and critics when it was screened in the United States.
Asian Movie Pulse, an online platform that focuses on Asian movie entertainment, ranked this film among the top 5 in its list of the 30 Best Southeast Asian Movies of 2023.
“Live – Phát Trực Tiếp is an excellent film that effectively conveys its plethora of comments while still providing entertainment through a mix of comedy, drama, and even horror,” it wrote.
Thien A. Pham, director of 3388 Films, said, “This is a special time for us as a film distributor because we believe that we can bring these movies to international audiences and showcase them abroad.
“It’s certainly not an easy journey, but we are willing to take risks for independent and international filmmakers, and we will continue our efforts to explore new distribution channels for these films.”
