Ho Chi Minh trail by mountain bike
21 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

Blood Road is an emotional documentary about a daughter (Rebecca Rusch) remembering her father, a US pilot that died during the Vietnam War, by riding the Ho Chi Minh trail by mountain bike and so to try finding the place where his plane crashed and where he lost his life. She does that in the company of the Vietnamese Huyen Nguyen. The nature shots and the traces of war, thousands of craters, are nicely shot. On their way, they talk about the stupidity of wars and other things. Once being ennemies, at least their forefathers, to now trying to understand what happened in those times. I'm a Belgian so I won't pick a side in any of all those ridiculous wars, but it's obvious the USA started a war again that shouldn't have taken place. The 50 or 60000 Americans that died there are a peanut compared to the million others that died there. Millions of bombs released on Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, killing millions by napalm and Agent Orange, once again the USA used non-conventional weapons and by so killing millions of innocents. That the father died, even though he was just following orders and had issues with it, is just what he deserved. That the daughter loved her father is normal and I applaud her quest. What I applaud even more is the fact she's now helping getting rid of those non-exploded bombs. Bombs that her father dropped. His other daughter apparently didn't understand anything about the issues of her father, because she's herself in the army right now. I don't know how she thinks that her father would be proud of that, but she apparently does think that. Blood Road is an interesting documentary to watch, even if you're not into wars.
