A perfectly light, warmly funny, and captivating romantic comedy from Vu Ngoc Phuong, London Film School graduate and renowned director of several highly acclaimed music videos and short films in Vietnam. In his debut feature film, Vu tells a story about love and friendship among young people with different zodiac signs and personalities. Huy is a Sagittarius playboy, fun-loving and always surrounded by short-term girlfriends, one of whom is Chi, an aggressive Leo who always tries her best to get what she wants. Then My, an innocent and gentle Pisces, comes into his life, taking his breath away despite their opposing fire/water zodiac sign combination. As a die-hard and passionate lover, Huy devises five steps to capturing My's heart. Will he ever succeed in his quest for love?
Coupling smart storytelling with voice-over narration, clever inserts of the zodiac signs, and a young and beautiful cast, Zodiac 12: Five Steps of Love will lead its audience from one surprise to another as it uncovers Huy, My, and Chi’s love triangle and their fight for love and friendship. The film demonstrates that the incompatibility between zodiac signs can become a minor obstacle during a couple's first encounter and that true love and honesty will always remain the determining factors in any romantic relationship. This film will no doubt amuse audiences, and blows a new breeze into Vietnamese romantic movies.
