What are people saying?

  • Vincent T's rating of the film The Little Girl of Hanoi

    a messy propaganda piece that comes straight out of Soviet montage and Italian neorealism textbooks. At every turn it will try to make you feel bad for the little girl, and remind you how wonderful the people are (especially Uncle Ho). The battle sequence kinda saves this film from being a complete mess, and the ending dutifully sews the film together with a message of hope in each other.
