After a few days since the Department of Radio, Television and Electronic Information sent a written request to Netflix to remove the movie “Little Women” due to content that distorts Vietnamese history. Today this movie has been officially removed.
On October 3, Mr. Le Quang Tu Do – Director of the Department of Radio, Television and Electronic Information said that he had sent a written request to Netflix to remove this movie from the application in Vietnam. In the document, the Bureau clearly stated the film’s violation: “The film violated the prohibited acts specified in Clause 4, Article 9 of the Press Law on distorting history, denying revolutionary achievements, and insulting ethnic minorities and violate the prohibited acts in cinematographic activities specified in Clause 4, Article 11 of the Law on Cinema with the same content as the above-mentioned articles in the Press Law.
These violations are reflected in the character’s dialogue when referring to the Vietnam War in episode 3 from minutes 58:01 to 58:22 and episode 8 from minutes 5:41 to 7:01.”
When realizing that the film contains words and content that distort Vietnamese history, many viewers were extremely angry and resolutely called for a boycott of director Kim Hee Won’s film. They even called for a boycott of the film’s cast for accepting the role of a film that distorts so much about Vietnamese history.
Today, the afternoon of October 6, after 3 days of receiving a request from the Department, Netflix has officially removed this movie from the application in Vietnam.
This is not the first film that the Department of Radio, Television and Electronic Information has requested Netflix to remove for violating Vietnam’s territorial sovereignty and has received strong reactions from Vietnamese audiences. Previously, Netflix had to remove a series of movies with non-standard content and words, distorting the history and sovereignty of Vietnam such as “To our warm youth”, “Foreign Minister” (2020), Pine Gap (2021)…
