Movie Info

Regis Wargnier's epic about French Indochina -- from the years of French colonial imperialism to the days when American presence made itself felt and the country became known as Vietnam -- is a story of romance and separation told through the backdrop of a country in turmoil. The film centers on the relationship of the beautiful and imperious Eliane (Catherine Deneuve), a French rubber-plantation owner, and Camille (Linh Dan Pham), her adopted Indochinese daughter. The mother and daughter are

A guilty pleasure, this French melodrama could have been called "Saigon, mon amour," a grand, sweeping and sprawling saga about a strong plantation owner (the beautiful Catherine Deneuve)--not unlike Vivien Leigh of Gone With the Wind.

The tendency of Oscar voters toward visual bombast and style-over-substance filmmaking in the English-language categories also applies in the international competition.

The concentration instead is on soap opera plotting that gets pretty sappy sometimes, as well as thick, torpid dialogue.

Audience Reviews for Indochine

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.

Lush locations, beautifully shot, romance, deceit and "la Deneuve". What more can you ask for?
