Movie Info

Could an American MIA be struggling to find his way home? After enduring a traumatic childhood and serving two tours in Vietnam, Tom Faunce embarks upon an emotional quest to uncover the true identity of a man claiming to be an American soldier living in a remote village in Vietnam, decades after the war's end. As a veteran and Christian missionary, Tom firmly believes in the military creed, "leave no man behind," and lives by a personal oath to spend the rest of his life helping those in need. He can't turn his back on the man he meets in present-day Vietnam, despite a government's denial of the man's claim. His struggle to repatriate the man whom he believes could be a fellow soldier forms a deeply moving and haunting tale of two men whose lives intersect through the burdens of war. Unclaimed offers a compelling reason to revive awareness of the POW/MIA discussion. " C) Official Site

One can't help but think that in the hands of a shrewder filmmaker like Errol Morris, this stranger-than-fiction account would have been absolutely riveting.

The film's many dangling threads... are obscured by a crescendo of sentiment that's hard to resist.

May 1, 2014 | Full Review…

A nakedly manipulative film, intercutting missionary Faunce's history with shots of a ludicrously glum and silent family dinner, and indulging in some treacly sad-face piano music.

A documentary that sends its audience on a rollercoaster ride of emotions.

Even by the final frames, you can't be sure. But you really want to believe the man claiming to be a U.S. Special Forces agent shot down in Laos during the Vietnam War is telling the truth.
