    Go tell the Spartans
    Born on the 4th of July

    Heaven & Earth
    Air America
    Gardens of Stone

    Thought that was Cambodia :?

    It is, it's not about the war in Vietnam, is about Pol Pot's ethnic genocide in Cambodia, excellent film :thumbsup:

    Yes technically you are correct. It was about the Khmer Rouge within Cambodia and the genocide they caused.
    Vietnam were involved because they invaded and put down the Khmer Rouge.

    A very good film but a horrific subject :x

    There are all sorts of offshoots from the "actual" Vietnam war.
    It should be remembered that Vietnam was subject to various struggles and wars before and after the Americans got involved.
    The French had their grubby hands on it as did the Chinese and I seem to remember the British being there or thereabouts at some stage.

    There are quite a few films that deal with the other Vietnam struggles.
