Co Gai Den Tu Hom Qua or The Girl from Yesterday has been acquired by Rafaella Films International for Philippine release. The hit romance movie earned 5 billion Vietnamese Dong (Php112,156,000) in just 10 days since it was released in their territory, one of the biggest releases in Vietnam last 2017.
The film is based on the novel of the same name by Nguyen Nhat Anh, a best-selling author in Ho Chi Minh City. The book was published in 1990 and has sold more than 200,000 copies and was used to teach Vietnamese at Moscow State University since 2012.
The film tells the story of Thu, a teenage boy who causes problems on a daily basis. One day, everything changed when he falls in love with a transfer student named Viet An. But every moments with her keep reminding him of his memories with his first love, Tieu Li.
The Girl from Yesterday is as bright and goofy as young love should be. It will bring back memories from your classroom to your peers in high school. It will bring back the very first time you’ve fallen in love for someone in your younger years.
Teenage love, petty fights with your friends and first love, The Girl from Yesterday has it all.
