Audience Reviews for Indochine

½

A movie that had its moments. The film itself seems to suffer from a lack of momentum; it strives to be an epic, but ends up being just a decent family drama. Beautfiul to look at, nonetheless. Good actors. Way long....

Indochine exposes a journey to freedom that narrates the clash of cultural and political paradigms set colonial French Indochina. A film, which in itself a revolution, a stand on issues of colonialism and resistance, culture and politics, and history and tradition made relevant for the consumption of general viewership by infusing human interest schemes. Meaningful. Inspiring. A national treasure.

Another pointed reminder why the French -- and the US after them -- were destined not to succeed in Vietnam. It's all about that maniacal empire building impulse, and all those "superior" countries that have tried to do it over the years in different countries all over the globe. It's a cliché: History really does repeat itself -- over and over again. Clichés often become clichés because they are true. History sadly repeats itself, but no one ever seems to learn the appropriate lessons when it comes to activities like trying to take over other countries and subjugating other people.
