you can't help but be moved...
4 April 2004 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

We found this to be a solid, engaging and moving documentary. Not expecting much, we quickly got sucked in. It felt as though we were watching a home movie. It is at times amateurish, while at the same time has been so well-constructed. Anyone with an interest in either the Vietnam war or how a loss can have far-reaching effects on a family will love this story. From the filmmakers mother to her father's comrades, everyone has been affected by an event that happened years ago. The interviews with her mother are worth the rental. We were really impressed with the courage that it must have taken to complete this picture. Any lack of production value is more than made up with solid, in-depth interviews and an intriguing storyline. Highly recommended.
