6. Living in Fear - Song trong so hai 2005 Chuyên Bui Thac Tai, a soldier in South Vietnam, had 2 wives living in 2 different places. When the war ended in 1975, he brought his second wife and her child to a new land which was littered with land mines and bombs leftover from the war. As a loser, he had no choice. He built a small house for himself. He worked extremely hard to earn money. One day, while having a drink with a Cong San named Nam Duc, he found out another way to earn his living. Nam Duc was a good mine clearer and he collected barbwire in the minefields in exchange for alcohol. Tai was taught how to earn money in that way by Nam Duc. Tai went to the minefield at the risk of his life and cleared land-mines. He collected scraps from the minefield. He had money to bring up his 2 wives and children. However, he understood that scraps would run out one day. He discovered a new way to be paid...He cleared land-mines daily for cultivation land. He dug for land-mines and took them out of land. And he had a simple conclusion: land-mines were only dangerous when they were stepped over. If being taken out, they were like stones 7. When the Tenth Month Comes - Bao gio cho den thang muoi - 1984 - Nhat Minh Dang Nhat Minh Dang´s wartime melodrama Bao Gio Cho Den Thang Muoi (When the Tenth Month Comes, 1984) about the struggle of ordinary people in a small village was made nine years after the Vietnam War had ended, a national tragedy which caused the deaths of more than three million citizens, and left the country devastated. Nhat Minh Dang who was born in 1938 and had made his start in documentary films while the war was still going on decided to make his feature debut about the impact the warface had especially on indivdual human beeings, far from any kind of propaganda, and so created an astonishing tragedy about a young woman who had lost her husband in the war, and now desperately ranges between her grief and the futile intent to find love again. The tenth month in the title of the film refers to the time of forgiveness in Vietnamese culture. The film begins with Duyen, the heroine returning from the front where she had discovered that her husband had been killed, and her decision to conceal this information from her sick father-in-law and her son to not cause them pain. She soon finds herself trapped because of the difficulty to keep on dissimulating, and finally asks a befriended school teacher called Zhang to write her letters in the name of her dead husband. The arrangement suceeds in order to tranquilize the family members, but her oppressed feelings towards Zhang begin to trouble her, and cause a feeling of guilt. The impossibility of taking a chance on a new love become clear when the society finds out about the strong relation between Duyen and Zhang, so that the alleged lovers see themselves confronted with incomprehension and repression. The complexity of reciprocal emotions make Duyen´s situation almost insupportable, so that her only resort becomes a world of dreams and cultural myths.
