Based on the novel of Vu Trong Phung, Giong To is a very dark and disturbing drama. It is still giving me a chill with its family affairs. The film is set in the early 1910; therefore, it is a despicable toward women. They are raped, bought and shared like sex toys. The conflicts are quite complex and distressful. Of course, the critical themes are involving sex, power, and revenge. Even though the overall acting is not so bad, I am not finding this film to be enjoyable. On the contrary, I find the topics to be unsettling. The sexual content, the language usage, and the subject are quite explicit so keep this film away from your children.
