    Subject

    "When Hung first told me about “Cyclo”, the words he used to define the film were: work, father-son relations, good, evil... We reached an agreement on the main orientation of the film. Then he left for Vietnam for three months to write the screenplay. (...) Shooting lasted four months, an ordeal for everyone but so enthralling! (...) “Cyclo” is also 80 sets, 30 actors, 8,000 extras, 30 French technicians, 12 tons of material... all shipped to Vietnam by plane or boat from France and Hong Kong... for a total budget of 38 million francs. (...)"
