SAIGON: STORY OF A CITY
Director(s): Alain TAIEB – Writer(s): Philippe FRANCHINI Contact Print page
the Continental was built in 1880 at the dawn of French colonisation in Indochina – the city of Saigon seems to have grown around it. It’s more than just a hotel. For over 95 years it has been the social centre of the city and home to generations of writers and reporters.
The Continental still exists, restored to its former glory, like a kind of literary, cinematographic and journalistic witness to the past of the city.
