Excellently shot! A story that needed to be told!
22 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you really want to see a movie about the aftermath of the Vietnam War, this is truly the only one that exists. No one has seen what happened to the Vietnamese who remained after the fall of Saigon. This movie shows it. Excellently acted and shot, it is a masterpiece that needs to be seen by everyone because you truly don't know what war is about until you see how it affects everyone involved during and after the war.

Kieu Chinh once again gives a fantastic performance. This veteran actor has only improved with age and I am happy to see that her talents are still in high demand. Long Nguyen gives an amazing performance as the prisoner of war who is placed in a re-education camp. First-time actor Diem Lien is excellent in the role of Mai. I hope to see her in more films in the future.

There is no objectionable language or nudity. Images of war and violence do occur (obviously) in the film.
