How Hongkong movies shaped my life

What makes you who you are today? Is it your family, your friends, what you have done or the places you have been to?

For Trần Duy Nguyễn, the answer lies in the 90s Hong Kong movies. To sit around the TV, watching Hong Kong films being played by a VHS player is the kind of memories many 8x and 9x Vietnamese share. It is common, but also very personal since such movies are the main and almost only form of entertainment there used to be.
