Dad, I’m Sorry movie review: sitcom-style melodrama that topped the box office in Vietnam is an anarchic and overblown celebration of family dynamics

  • Tran Thanh writes, co-directs and stars in Dad, I’m Sorry, made up with greying hair and a moustache to play a patriarch hiding something from his family
  • The film lurches from one drama to the next with little regard for subtlety or consistency, and reinforces conservative attitudes about filial responsibility
