Scent of Green Papaya's warmth and beauty create a magical feeling that's more important than narrative.

Almost silent, and marked by great pictorial beuaty, the film revolves around a young Vietnamese servant during the French occupation, though politics remains in the background--a classic coming of age

A portrait of a tranquil Vietnam unknown to most Westerners . . . a lyrical and magical movie-masterpiece.

A terrific film, one of tremendous visual beauty, but one that steers clear of any overt political messages.
