Disabled Vietnam War vet Lloyd Dubeck can't find work after returning home. With nothing for him in the States. he returns to Saigon in search of his Vietnamese mistress, and half breed child they had together. He searches the streets and orphanages, with no clue to there whereabouts, other then that his child has green eyes. Along his journey, he befriends a young orphaned street hustler named Trung, who unintentionally guides Lloyd down a road of self discovery and redemption for America's part in the war that contributed to the devastation and poverty now befallen Saigon, forcing Lloyd to finally confront his personal demons, including the final outcome of where fate brought his mistress and child after abandoning them years back.

My Uncle Gene
15 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Green Eyes is a great movie. In todays context of supporting our troops, it is interesting this movie showed the lack of respect soldiers received from doing their duty, during this period. From a historical view, the end of the Vietnam war left all of us with something to remember and learn from. Gene was very proud of this movie, and he deserved the credits he received from writing "Green Eyes". I agree, I do not understand why this movie is not shown more often, or at all. This movie is the kind of movie that should be shown on TV every year, much like the Wizard of Oz. The dedication of one man towards his lost son is entirely moving. I was a friend of Gene Logans and I was proud to know him. Rocky
