Trivia

The story was inspired by the Lee Teter print "Reflections". The film's co-Screenwriter, retired U.S. Army Major Ken Miller, who served in Vietnam, saw Teter's famous illustration in an art gallery, and immediately was filled with war-related emotions. See more »

An excellent film
22 July 2005 | by fpiiiesqSee all my reviews

I was invited to a screening in New York City recently and thoroughly enjoyed this film. Mr. Glover's and Zoe Weizenbaum's performances were superb. The locations in the movie were some of the most beautiful country I have ever seen and the photography and lighting was breathtaking. The story is well-paced and and the supporting characters were interesting and well acted. Mr. Perlman artfully conveys much emotion through his character without speaking a word. This movie really is a powerful, and sometimes gut-wrenching, examination of the lasting effects of the Vietnam conflict on those who experienced the war.
