Far From Vietnam (Loin du Vietnam) Reviews

Jamie S. Rich

"Far from Vietnam" drags slightly, but it remains a powerful example of what can happen when artists apply their talents to doing more than entertain.

It's fascinating to see a dissenting opinion and wonder where the truth really lies.

None of the French talent involved seemed to recall that the Vietnam conflict had its roots in the French military occupation of Indochina. Obviously, there was more than a little amnesia on the road from Dien Bien Phu to the Cannes screening rooms.

Alternately strident and eloquent, muddled and incisive, Far From Vietnam remains compelling both as artful propaganda and as a prophetic historical artifact.

The horror of the war's direct effect, the fury of the resistance that it provoked, the self-inflicted damage to American ideals, and its over-all impact as a lever for huge social, political, and psychological fractures are packed in.

A broken film doesn't really make the best statement about anything. Or utter a cry.

Although dated as propaganda, it's still one of the most effective political documentaries ever made.

The Vietnam War comes back vividly, frighteningly in this collaborative work from distinguished filmmakers

Most problematic is the way in which the Vietnamese are romanticized, as if they had not fought for their livelihoods and land, visceral and specific, but for ideals alone.
