As a freedom fighter, a hustler, young mother, a sometime prostitute, and the wife of a US. marine, the girl’s relationships with men suggests an analogy of Vietnam as Woman and the U.S. as Man.
Plot: Le Ly lives in a small Vietnamese village whose serenity is shattered when war breaks out. Caught between the Viet Cong and the South Vietnamese army, the village is all but destroyed. After being both brutalized and raped, Le Ly resolves to flee. She leaves for the city, surviving desperate situations, but surviving nonetheless. Eventually she meets a U.S. Marine named Steve Butler who treats her kindly and tells her he would like to be married — maybe to her.

One Of The Best And Most Underrated Films About The Vietnam War
This is the last film in Oliver Stone’s trilogy about the Vietnam war (the other two are ‘Platoon’ and ‘Born on the 4th of July’). It is also the least known. A shame really; not only is it an excellent film, but it is also one of the very few films that show the Vietnam war from the perspective of the Vietnamese (and from a woman, at that – which makes it even rarer). Impressive, shocking, sad and beautiful – and educating. 8 stars out of 10.

In case you’re interested in more underrated masterpieces, here’s some of my favorites:

exploring the “other” and doing it with (imperfect) artistic integrity
As the third part of an unofficial trilogy of Vietnam films, Stone picked as the final point a good challenge for himself as making a film not only from a woman’s point of view (1st time), but from the side of the “enemy” of the war he and Kovic fought in. Of course Vietnamese people were seen in Platoon and Born on the Fourth of July, but always as the “other”, either in limited roles as the so-called enemy or as tragic figures of oppression. And yet despite opening during the Christmas season, it failed to connect with audiences.

Seeing it now, finally, I can see why in some part; people from the West, Americans especially, wouldn’t necessarily be interested in the point of view of someone who was on the side of the ‘other’, whether it’s oppressor or oppressed (despite the attempted selling of the film on Tommy Lee Jones, audiences probably knew better that he wasn’t the full star, more on him in a moment). It’s one thing to see the point of view from the side of Americans, but for the other it’s a tougher pill to swallow (maybe the exception is Letters from Iwo Jima, maybe), despite years after things are over and the wounds are beginning to heal. Maybe there’s another aspect that is difficult to pinpoint but I could see it as Stone’s, shall one say, spiritual side coming through which is his Buddhism, which is the religion of the protagonist Le Ly. How does one fully forgive and go for the belief in karma and past lives and so on?

For me, this is a film that I could connect to simply on the grounds of it being a human portrait of a life lived through many, many beats. And in a way it makes sense from how the life story is told that it’s the third part of a trilogy which began as a story of someone’s life in the short term (the stint in combat), somewhat longer (from youth to awakening as a man full circle), and here it’s from childhood to further as an adult. The life of Le Ly is at times dramatic… no, actually, it’s brutal and unrelenting in its grimness. Le Ly’s village is decimated and torn apart by war (not simply the Americans, though they certainly leave their mark, but the division between the two sides of the Vietnamese who bring equal hardship and misery and torture to Le Ly), and then when she has to leave with her mother to Saigon, as the story would say, “my troubles were about to begin”.

I’m tempted to say the first half of this may be TOO dramatic, in a sense, that things keep being thrown at Le Ly’s way one after another: torture, rape, becoming an unwed mother on the streets, a dying (soon after dead) father, as well as a brother who was sent off to war and died. When I say ‘heavy’ it’s more like an anvil is dropped. This is not to say the tone is always so heavy as far as being over-bearing – the emotion that’s poured out in scene after scene by Hiep Thi Le is incredible, showing so much through her eyes as many a great actor can do. I think part of is is simply through Oliver Stone being… Oliver Stone, this coming as the “cool-off” between JFK and Natural Born Killers, so you can expect sometimes unwieldy camera-work and black and white flashbacks and the sort of intense lighting and compositions from Robert Richardson that, in a way, feel a little more out of place this time than in other Stone films of the period. The attempts to amplify the tension and horror (with the exception of one image, a big shock of fire going across the screen) are too much this time and clash with the otherwise strong, pretty straightforward direction of the dramatic scenes.

Then we get into the second half when Tommy Lee Jones comes in, and it becomes a stronger picture. But his part in the film as well as everything that comes after does only work with that first half, if that makes sense; everything that Le Ly has endured and experienced, every moment that’s forced her to be less foolish or ignorant or slow to understand something or naive makes her stronger so that when a strong, seemingly kind and generous man like Jones’ Steve comes in, we get it. We know why she puts her guard up and why it goes down. And for Jones’ part, as he has an arc as well as a man with a slowly-but-surely deteriorating veneer of strength through years of being a f***ed up “Psy-Ops” guy, he gives the performance that I’ll just pretend he won the Oscar for in 94 instead of the Fugitive. It’s really among his major performances, certainly one of the ones he should be remembered for, creating this man Steve as an engaging, fun, terrifying, wounded, tragic figure in Le Ly’s life.

I think that if Stone had reeled in some of his crazier stylistic tendencies of the period – he does, mostly, but not enough – and perhaps cut a little out (at 140 minutes it feels too long, mostly near the end, however necessarily in general it may be to complete Le Ly’s arc), it would’ve been a film to stand with the rest of his work for the time. But as far as underrated films from a major director, this is one that is deeply felt and reveals someone who can deliver an experience outside of his usual worldview. At the same time it works as a feminist picture, a story of a woman making her own life on her own terms, while the spiritual side of things is always there. Though I wanted to like it more, I’d say if you want to finish Stone’s oeuvre you won’t be disappointed.
