Traps (Pauline Chan, 1994) wr. Robert Carter, Pauline Chan, from novel Dreamhouse by Kate Greville, dp Kevin Hayward, ed. Nicholas Beauman; Saskia Reeves, Robert Reynolds, Sami Frey, Jacqueline McKenzie, Kiet Lam; filmed on location in Vietnam; Chan's feature debut; English couple come to French Indo-China, 1950, to do photo-journalism story on rubber plantation, and become involved in political developments

The book was set in Italy. Chan, who was born in Vietnam, transposed it there.

I hope the film becomes available again; I thought it was excellent.
