Vu believes that one of the reasons the film will be successful is its use of stunning scenery. The film tells the story of Hung, who holds the secret of the eternal life.

Hung’s tumultuous life reveals a story filled with ambition, vengeance and dark magic. To portray the life spanning three centuries, Vu and the film crew had to find different places to fit the story.

The audience will not only enjoy a romantic and thrilling film, but they also join a tour throughout the country, with beautiful scenes in Hanoi, Ha Nam, Hung Yen, Quang Binh, HCM City, Tien Giang, and Dong Nai.

The scenes vary in terrain, from the delta, grasslands, valleys and hills to forests, caves, sea and the highest mountain peaks. 

“Seventy percent of the scenes were filmed in the caves and mountains in Phong Nha, Tu Lan, Bo Trach and Dong Hoi,” he said.

Director Vu said he has always been charmed and thrilled in front of the beautiful scenery of the country. He always kept in his memory the landscapes of the places he visited, as he believed that one day, they could be ideal backgrounds for his films.

As the life of Hung spreads over three centuries, the film crew also had to find suitable contexts and design the background to fit different historical periods, said Vu.

The crew also depicted cultural heritage by shooting at old villages of Cuu (Phu Xuyen district, Hanoi) and Nom (Hung Yen) as well as French-style villas in the Mekong Delta.

Audiences will understand the life and culture of Vietnamese people under feudalism, the colonial regime and in modern times. Cultural elements like traditional customs, lifestyles, architecture, music and costumes will also be showcased.

Victor Vu is a director and writer, known for his Yellow Flowers on the Green Grass (2015), Scandal (2012) and Qua Tim Mau (Vengeful Heart, 2014).

While the film Yellow Flowers on the Green Grass lured more tourists to Phu Yen province where the film was shot, Victor Vu expected that The Immortal will do it better in promoting national tourism.
