The Deer Hunter is an astonishing powerful and vivid epic about three steelworkers from Pennsylvania whose lives are changed irrevocably in the tragic devastation of the Vietnam war. When Michael, Steven and Nick are captured by the Vietcong, they are forced to play Russian Roulette by their brutal captors who make bets on their survival. The experience of capture leaves them with terrible physical and spiritual wounds and when Michael returns to Saigon to fulfil an old vow to one of his friends he makes an unexpected horrific discovery. Director Michael Cimino's The Deer Hunter won 5 Oscars in 1978 for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor, Best Editing and Best Sound.
