Storyline

Disabled Vietnam War vet Lloyd Dubeck can't find work after returning home. With nothing for him in the States, he returns to Saigon in search of his Vietnamese mistress, and half breed child they had together. He searches the streets and orphanages, with no clue to there whereabouts, other then that his child has green eyes. Along his journey, he befriends a young orphaned street hustler named Trung, who unintentionally guides Lloyd down a road of self discovery and redemption for America's part in the war that contributed to the devastation and poverty now befallen Saigon, forcing Lloyd to finally confront his personal demons, including the final outcome of where fate brought his mistress and child after abandoning them years back.

Green Eyes - 25 Year Search
7 September 2006 | by shaydlaneSee all my reviews

No movies have grabbed my attention like this one has. You see, I have wanted to watch this movie again for over twenty-five years. The one and only time I saw it was as a teen-ager which may have been the year it was released, 1977.

What I do remember of the movie is that it touched those deep-held emotions so profoundly that there is still an overwhelming desire to watch it again. The intrigue this movie provides by the human element of father/son seeking and searching is sure to touch every human soul who watches it. Why this movie has not been brought out of storage and shown as often as many other movies of lesser depth, I do not know.

Postscript: Received copy of movie and after watching it again was delighted to see that my memory held true. Rating reflects movie content. Would like to watch this movie on DVD as seeing this 1977 production on a used VHS tape took away from the overall quality.
