The talented man said that he himself expected a breakthrough in Vietnam’s cinematography in the coming time, especially young directors’ works.
Australian-born Phillip Noyce began his career in the ‘70s as a director of little-seen but widely acclaimed films. Then he directed the famous works namely “Dead calm” in 1989, which created precious opportunity for actress Nicole Kidman to join Hollywood. He spent the next decade grinding out big-budget films including the Tom Clancy adaptations “Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger”.
Two great films “Rabbit-Proof Fence” and “The Quiet American” helped Noyce suddenly back in critical favor. Due to his work on those films, he won 2002\'s Best Director by the National Board of Review.
