Sinh menh is a socio-psychological film with a war theme, produced by the Vietnam Feature Film Studio under the direction of Dao Duy Phuc in 2006.
On the battlefield, the line between life and death is the thinnest. It is within this hard line that human instinct is revealed.
The movie tells the story of Linh "Bear", born in a rural family in northern Vietnam to a mother who always wanted a boy grandchild. Linh gets married but immediately has to join the army, bringing with him his fond memory of the young and beautiful woman at home and his desire to have a child.

The main character in the award-winning feature film "Father and Son" is a little boy named Ca or Fish. He lives with his blind father, who has spent his entire life by the river. Ca's world revolves around the river and everything related to it, including animals, flowers, and the wooden fish his father carved for him.
The little boy has dreams of touching the clouds and visiting the fantastical fairy tale lands described by his father. However, he suffers from an incurable disease and cannot wait for the day when his father has enough money to take him to the doctor.
The script for the movie was inspired by Dung's experiences when he wrote "Father and Son" in 1995.
Meanwhile, "Yellow Flowers on Green Grass" is a state-commissioned film produced by Vietnam's Galaxy Media and Entertainment and the Cinematography Department of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
Based on the best-selling novel by author Nguyen Nhat Anh, the film is set in a small village in the mid-1980s and tells the story of two young brothers who share everything but compete for the affection of the same girl.
According to film critics, "Yellow Flowers on Green Grass" features great music, stunning camera work, heartwarming rural scenes, and cute child actors.
