Critic Reviews for Cyclo
Just as impressive as his feature debut Scent of the Green Papayas, as a poetic study of survival in modern and ravished Vietnam, Cyclo will be compared to De Sica's post- WWII classic Bicycle Thief.
Liquids become the motif d'abus of the film: water, blood, vomit, sweat, oil, urine, humidity, and paint.
Features some eye-popping cinematography
La narrativa y la historia son perfectamente aplicables a la realidad social de nuestra ciudad, y la dinámica visual que presenta es digna de verse.
This powerful film offers Westerners a potent dosage of what life is like in a Third World country, a country most Americans only envision in a depersonalized way.

Audience Reviews for Cyclo
Cyclo is an excellent Vietnamese drama that is very strange in the way that it's structured. Though the story jumps around, it's a very engaging story about several characters and their problems, though it mostly focuses on a teenage boy who gets pulled into the criminal underworld and the awful things he is forced to do. It's an engaging and compelling drama with a lot to sink your teeth into in terms of storytelling. It's an immensely enjoyable drama that is well worth seeing if you're a fan of dramas.
Pretty crazy movie (like balancing on a high-rise skeleton). One particular scene will never leave you. My kind of movie. Memorable.
An extremely powerful movie...really makes you grateful to live in america. I reccomend it to anyone, but good luck finding it. Since i only tried to find it as a joke (since i call myself cyclo), im very pleased it was actually an excellent movie.
