The film’s three-hour duration makes it difficult for many people to accept.

Screenwriter Tran Ly Tri Tan commented that the film made him feel heavy and sometimes frustrated because of the long takes.

On VnExpress, reader Lee Nguyen commented: `The movie is difficult to watch, vague, scattered. The dialogue is not as sharp as American movies, but difficult to understand.`

The work is picky about audiences because Pham Thien An’s filmmaking style does not meet domestic tastes.

According to Doctor of Film Theory Dao Le Na, Vietnamese audiences often like films with clear dramatic and tragic elements.

Doctor of Literary Theory Ho Khanh Van – University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Ho Chi Minh City National University – believes that many domestic audiences have not had the opportunity to come into contact with `sensation films` (films).

Pham Thien An’s filmmaking style eliminates drama, focuses on describing feelings, and is influenced by the New Hollywood wave (mid-1960s to early 1980s).

Tran Anh Hung – excellent director of the 2023 Cannes Film Festival – said the work challenges many filmmakers and is a lesson for domestic and foreign film talents.
