Foodlore: He Serves Fish, She Eats Flower
Press Play to start
At the 16th edition of Five Flavors, as last year, there is a system of booking seats at cinema screenings for accreditation and pass holders. It is important to us that we take care not to overcrowd the rooms and avoid queues at the entrance.
Only a reservation guarantees you a seat at a screening!
The reservation system is very simple and is based on similar principles as buying tickets for individual screenings - just login to your account, visit the page of the selected film and click "book". Detailed information can be found below.
Please make reservations only for the screenings you wish to attend. Reservations can be cancelled, even at the last minute - please remember this and always cancel your reservation if you cancel your screening - this will allow other viewers to use the available space.
Reservations will be possible from Tuesday, 15 November from 12:00 p.m. for all the festival's films.
Reservation of seats
for pass and accreditation holders
Tuesday, November 15, 12:00 pm
If you decide to attend a screening at the last minute or for any other reason you do not book in advance, and there are seats available in the auditorium, your booking will be made "automatically" at the entrance to the auditorium after scanning your pass.
For most of the screenings there will be free seats before the show itself. However, please pay special attention to the screenings of Edward Yang's works and the screenings of those films that we only show in the cinema - we expect the highest attendance at these screenings.
This year, you will also be able to use an electronic pass by presenting it to ticket takers on your phone screen.
Thang is a young, ambitious cook, working in one of the restaurants filling the small streets of Ho Chi Minh with delicious aromas. His standards are very high, but there is one client whose approval is particularly important to him. Can he guess what the beautiful Van really craves?
The Vietnamese episode of HBO's eight-part culinary series is a beautifully filmed, sensual tale of the indissoluble bond between food and passion. Looking for
a union of taste becomes a metaphor for building relationships – with all its uncertainty, excitement, readiness to take risks, and finding pleasure in discovering each other, but also with the realization that the idealized person could really be the opposite of what we have imagined.
