Vientiane in Love is the first Lao omnibus film and offers a unique representation of contemporary Laotian culture. This collection of five short films tackle love in various forms: a probable romance; a love gone wrong; a long-extinguished love; familial love, as well as love for one’s humble work; and unrequited yet unselfish love. Set in the capital city of Laos, these love stories reflect nuanced and non-typical relationships, complete with romance, heartbreak, and even humor.
