      Audience Member Gives a unique perspective on Vietnam. I found it all a little too simple and the pacing threw me off a bit, but it's a good film for the cultural experience and breathtaking cinematography. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Alexander W A beautiful, serene, portrayal of Vietnamese snippets. Like listening to a selection of poems.
