German-American Dieter Dengler discusses his service as an American naval pilot in the Vietnam War. Dengler also revisits the sites of his capture and eventual escape from the hands of the Vietcong, recreating many events for the camera.
This is a 4-minute short film by German director Werner Herzog. Basically, for the entire movie, we see African natives while hearing "La Bohème". As I wrote in the title, there is a strong contrast between the video and the audio. Occasionally we also see that the Africans in the film are heavily armed. Herzog worked on African soil already as a filmmaker too, so he may be the right man for this short. Nonetheless I was not really impressed and I did not find it very memorable. Love the director, but this is probably one of his weakest films. He made two feature film that were non-documentaries in 2009, so I guess he had the time to fit this one in-between.
