Very honest and brutal
12 December 1999 | by (An Igloo, North Pole) – See all my reviews

I watched this mini series off an old broken video casette that my parents had lost for many years. I was two at the time. Vietnam is about the lives of a group of men who are conscripted to fight in the Vietnam War. They go abroad, but soon become entangled in the seedy underground life of the country. Great imagery and direction, (i think this mini series won a couple of awards). One of the best things i've watched. Look for Nicole Kidman in a bit part.
