Lê Lê

Dan Säll, Denmark, 2008

58 min.DK/Documentary

A film describing the spiritual and physical thirty year journey of four Vietnamese brothers and sisters; The flight from Vietnam, the childhood in the takeaway in the countryside of Northern Jutland in Denmark and today, the ownership of one of Northern Europe's biggest Asian restaurants, Lê Lê, situated in Copenhagen.
We follow the siblings at the reopening of their jet-set restaurant, in larger and more up to date surroundings. A move made necessary due to the success of their old restaurant, situated just 150 meters from the new Lê Lê.
Without safety net and the fortune in pawn the new restaurant is another joint venture, driven by the passion and charismatic personalities of the Vietnamese brothers and sisters and their never ending debt of gratitude towards their parents.
