Far From Vietnam (Loin du Vietnam) Photos

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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.
