Vietnam 2030 rising seas have forced the population to live in houseboats and rely on a depleting sh supply while multinationals compete to set up oating vegetable farms. A young woman Sao believes one of them is linked to her husband s murder. “Nuoc” means water and rarely has it been so generously and lushly filmed creating a glistening sea-world that subjugates every aspect of daily life from the intimate to nding nourishment to burying the dead. Vietnam’s first venture into sci-fi cinema 2030 is a dystopian portrait of the demise of life on land based on more than anticipatory fancy. Some predictions forecast the submergence of 50 of southern Vietnam’s farmland in less than 3 decades.
