HCM CITY — The award-winning movie Đêm Tối Rực Rỡ (The Brilliant Darkness!), which focuses on domestic abuse, is being shown in cinemas nationwide to meet the demand of moviegoers who did not have a chance to watch it before.

Directed by American Aaron Toronto, the work opens at the funeral of a grandfather whose family members believe left them a fortune. But his children find out that their father lost a fortune gambling, and the mafia is coming to collect the debt. They must pay by sunrise, or else there will be another funeral.

The movie features veteran actors and actresses such as Huỳnh Kiến An, Phương Dung and Xuân Trang, and new face Lý Nguyễn Nhã Uyên.

The film won Best Feature Film and Best Cinematography at the Golden Kite Awards given by the Việt Nam Cinema Association (VCA) in Nha Trang, Khánh Hòa Province last September.

Nhã Uyên received two prizes for Best Leading Actress and Best Screenplay, while Kiến An was given the prize for Best Supporting Actor.

The movie brought home Best Story and Best Performance (female) awards at the 2022 Santa Fe Film Festival in New Mexico, the USA.

It was also named among 116 submissions for Non-English Language Film at the 2023 Golden Globe Awards.

According to a representative of CJ CGV Vietnam, theatres and distributors will create the best conditions for Vietnamese films, especially quality works, to be appreciated by audiences nationwide.

Starting with The Brilliant Darkness!, many films, which have achieved good results in the past, are expected to return to cinemas.

The Brilliant Darkness! was released last April and earned more than VNĐ20 billion (US$844,000) in ticket sales. — VNS
