However, we must remember that the film was made in difficult conditions in Vietnam, and “The Curse of the Snake Valley” is a genre film. The story tells the story of a military pilot played by Roman Wilhelmi. He goes to a Buddhist temple and steals a box. After many years, the commando comes to the sinologist and asks to read the manuscript.
