Beside lake Nam Ngum, in the north of Laos, we follow the intersecting fates of France, a young woman courted by two men coming from two very different worlds, and Hugo, a Frenchman looking for the woman who left him the year before. “I arrived in France in 1976 at the age of ten. This project is a reflection of my life story, that of a person of French culture who has never forgotten his Laotian roots. To start with, the scenario was based on France’s relationship with Hugo, whose arrival in her family revived the memory of her French father. The theme then moved towards the influence of China on the development of Laos in today’s world. Goodbye Mister Wong, behind its fairytale appearance, is a bittersweet fable... My films quickly turn into records of an ever-changing Laos. In five years’, time, when we see what the Chinese have done to the lake, we will feel very nostalgic remembering what it was like in the film “Goodbye Mister Wong”. Love stories have made it possible for me to treat all sorts of delicate topics.” Kiyé Simon Luang
