nothing groundbreaking- but worth the watch
10 February 2019 | by aminifatimaaaSee all my reviews

Even those who dislike war films would find this film worth staying with until the end. The underdeveloped motives of the characters can seem distancing at first, but skillful dramatization soon sweeps us along. People are rarely one-dimensional, and the characters here travel across a wide range of experiences, attitudes, and behaviour. The Vietnam War proved costly in lives lost and disrupted. In "Sunny" we see that cost at a personal level.
