Thi Hai Yen Do
Her presence. her impecable performance. like beautiful cinematography. and the performances of Michael Caine and Brendan Fraser. as key of a drama who seduce, imprese, surprise, provoke. not only as inspired adaptation. but as an useful reflection about present. not a critic. not a revelation. only a sort of precise conclusion. about people, choices, trust and the way to define the reality. it is one films about Vietnam who gives to you the feeling to discover the essence of that land in centre of war. you feel the land and the air and the rain and the pain of people. grace of cinematography, off course. but not only. because it is a film who shows new manner to see the life. as reflection of yourself and as the fruit of fundamental options. so, more than a good film. maybe, one of real useful.
