Thought Provoking film about Canada & Viet Nam
1 February 2009 | by Wanda-10See all my reviews

I caught this film at a festival with no idea what I was in store for. I had not seen any trailers or read anything about the film. Being a US citizen and a bit on the young side to remember too many details of Viet Nam I had never given any thought to how the war might have played in Canada--except it was a place where people headed to if they wanted to stay out of the fight. Well, getting to see this film definitely changed all that. It's a griping and gritty story that prompted me to want to study up and find out more about Canada's involvement in the Viet Nam. Kudos to filmmaker/actor Barry Levy for undertaking such a massive and controversial story in a bold and brave way! I would imagine they could be a quite an interesting film about the making of this film.
