In the first week after the Lunar New Year holiday, Viet Ciné Corner by TPD will bring you Right Heart Campaign. The screening is followed by a discussion with the co-writer of the movie, Mr. Hoang Anh Tu.

The movie tells the story of a group of 10 graders called “Bat Quai” (Bagua) who are very mischievous but no less brilliant. Hoai An (Ho Ngoc Ha), a young teacher assigned to be in charge of the class, quickly wins the heart of the students and become their idol.

The movie brings about a cheeky explanation on the need for an idol which deemed natural for young people. An idol is an idol not because of their teachings but their unique personality that completely wins over these kids. A group called “Group of people who admires Ms. Hoai An” is formed to escort the teacher at all time, and they even make a campaign to find her… a boyfriend. And, in this cute and mischievous way of idolization, the class’ atmosphere becomes more lively and positive. It is a light-hearted, joyful film that is no less meaningful, portraying the coming-of-age spirit in the student years.
