Most of the films made near Hanoi or in the North of Vietnam has a 1980s or 1990s feel in terms of filming and sound technology even though they are made as recently as from 2015 or 2017.   Yet, the quality of the screenplay, filming techniques, mise-en-scène and even acting seem much superior than the run of the mill crap that is produced in the South.  Do you think decades old experience in communist propaganda give film directors in the North an edge?
