    Not quite. It's a Vietnamese film.

    Here's another frame:
    4738433B-6FA1-451E-8A88-786F57F534A0.jpg

    Hint: it's a multilinear (interwoven storylines between multiple characters) film.

    It's not The Scent of Green Papaya, is it?

    Right, it is not.

    Two more hints:
    1) depicted/shoot during a period where Vietnam underwent social and economical reforms
    2) depict the tension between the aspiration for social mobility and retaining tradition, the conflict between the past and present, and the need for a companion

    I will reveal the film's title if no one gets it by tomorrow night.

    Well, to be fair, I'm not asking you to walk on one hand, juggle, tap-dance, and sing for me, while you are hiding the fact that your wife is dead (assuming you are referring to this).

    I did intentionally pick a more challenging frame than my last one, but hopefully my hints and adding another frame (which is within the iconic scene for this film) tilt the scale somewhat. I didn't mean to make this game impossible to play.

    Yep, that's the reference.

    For me most of the films are patently unguessable . . . There's a lot of obscure and foreign films . . .

    I need a Identity the film from the production stills dumbass edition thread I guess.

    A poetic film that tries to paint a picture of Saigon's urban culture undergoing westernization as the characters try to come to terms with the invasion of capitalism, neon signs, grand 5-star hotels, and Coca-Cola signs, their paths begin to merge. A lotus seller competing with plastic flowers. An American GI looking for his lost daughter. A kid living in the street. A cyclo driver falling in love with a prostitute. Through their interlocking story, we are taken through a society amidst a drastic transition, torn between its tradition and the need to keep pace with an evolving world.

    A timeless plot: When modern encroaches on old.

    I'm surprised that no one has made a film of this in terms of contact with an advanced space alien civilization, and how our "Modern" and "advanced" high tech society and culture turns out to be woefully primitive in comparison to what aliens bring.

    That would be interesting plot, but sadly most films depict aliens as the "bad guys" which is a story too often repeated. Would Arrival (2016) fit what you are looking for?
