Movie Info

Six directors combine efforts for this documentary, a searing anti-American indictment of U.S. involvement in Vietnam. Alain Resnais, William Klein, Joris Ivens, Agnes Varda, Claude Lelouch, and Jean-Luc Goddard all direct segments. They are quick to point out that the U.S. is radically divided about their country's policy to stop the threat of communism. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Far From Vietnam (Loin du Vietnam)

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

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

Boston Globe
Top Critic

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.

Necessarily dated but still a fascinating document.

Top Critic

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

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

Attitudes towards Vietnam aren't likely to be greatly changed by this picture: it can produce no new facts, no film to shock audiences into an altered understanding.
