"There are times when viewers might find themselves weeping during The Vertical Ray of the Sun without quite knowing the reason why. Tran Anh Hung's exquisite film is not only great cinema, it also has moments when it is an unforgettable painting or an indelible piece of music capable of provoking an uncontrollable emotional response."  From Rod Armstrong
