The innocence of childhood well-depicted! Cinematography was immensely impressive; the lush vegetation, the verdant hills, the blue seas! All these and more, typical of rural Vietnam in the 1980's tend to draw viewers to daydream of bygone years but the emotional story and the realistic portrayals will also jolt you to your senses. Sincere, quitely charming and human nature bared to its truest form. I enjoin you to watch this film and be lulled with its innate beauty and charm.
