This 10 part series follows a family affected by the Vietnam war, Nicole Kidman plays a young woman who becomes an anti war activist, when she sees what is happening in Veitnam after the Australians got involved. Shows real footage of the Vietnam during war time and shows the lack of human rights shown towards the veitnamese
I find it a true tragedy that because this is an Australian production that it didn't get a good promotion overseas, that so many unfortunate people will never get to see it.
The direction is absolutely fantastic. With musical and TV clips throughout the show to tell you what time era you were in. You are kept right up to date with the exact year and the atmosphere of that time. Much Australian political, society history surrounding the Vietnam war is told in a way that is pure poetry.
Nicole Kidman SHINES in this show. In fact, although she has been in much bigger INTERNATIONAL successes, this one is possibly her best performance.
The tragedies of the war. The conflicts between the soldiers and those at home. It's all here. I don't know if it will ever come out on DVD. But if it does --- DON'T MISS IT. I give this show a rare 10/10
