Far From Vietnam Photos

Movie Info

Six revolutionary filmmakers from France's New Wave era come together in this documentary to demonstrate their collective contempt for the Vietnam War. The film, which includes segments directed by Jean-Luc Godard and Agnès Varda, combines war footage with popular culture snippets such as commercials, to prove a point. Interviews with politicians such as Ho Chi Minh are featured, as well as a dialogue between a Vietnamese woman and the widow of a protester.

Critic Reviews for Far From Vietnam

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (4)

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

    October 24, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    October 24, 2013 | Full Review…
  • A broken film doesn't really make the best statement about anything. Or utter a cry.

    October 24, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Necessarily dated but still a fascinating document.

    October 24, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Although dated as propaganda, it's still one of the most effective political documentaries ever made.

    October 24, 2013 | Full Review…
  • 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.
