The Frida Cinema is proud to present the first Vietnamese film to be released in the United States, director Le-Van Kiet’s electrifying action thriller Furie.

International star Veronica Ngo stars as Hai Phuong (the original Vietnamese title of the film), a notorious former gangster who is lying low in the countryside after becoming a mother.  Despite her best efforts at living a peaceful existence, Hai Phuong springs into action when her daughter is kidnapped by a trafficking ring — and soon finds that old habits die hard, stopping at nothing to reunite with her daughter, and leaving a trail of mayhem in her wake.

We are excited to offer our audiences an opportunity to experience this highly entertaining film – a historical first in international cinema – on the big screen at The Frida!

“A refreshing entry from Vietnam, and an equally exhilarating showcase of Veronica Ngo’s undeniable talent.” – Alex Lines, Film Inquiry

“Kiet manages to pour on the tension without succumbing to nonsensical escalation, keeping the whole of Furie feeling personal and intimate.” – Douglas Davidson, Elements of Madness

“The next time Jennifer Garner wants to do an action movie like the flavorless ‘Peppermint,’ she could take a few lessons from Veronica Ngo, the explosively charismatic star of the head-cracking, bone-breaking Vietnamese martial-arts slam-o-rama Furie.” – Cary Darling, Houston Chronicle
