The Floating Lives is a movie based on a short story by Nguyen Ngoc Tu in Vietnam. In Vietnam, the movie and the novel have the same name - Endless Fields (Vietnamese: Cánh đồng bất tận). It generated revenues of 17 billion VND in 2010 (around 0.8 million USD).[1]


"The Endless Field" was written in 2006 by Nguyen Ngoc Tu and became a controversial short story at once. BHD (Hãng phim Việt) bought its copyright at a reasonable price. "The Endless Field" was made into the Vietnamese feature film Floating Lives in 2010.

The English translation appears in a collection of NNT short stories titled Floating Lives. The translator is Luu ThanhThuy and the publisher is ASEAN (2013).
