I found this DVD in a bargain basket at a Walmart grocery store. Forget the politics for a few minutes. I’m a conservative, but I really don’t think this movie was about the Vietnam War. It was about women as “muses.” Muses are inspirations for artists and others.
The whole movie is based upon the concept of a special girl as the inspiration for a special soldier’s courage. One loses it and one gains it. I like that.
Liam Hemsworth plays a cliché adequately. He’s the ladies’ man who thinks of himself as the leading man of every moment of life. But I like the way they paired a guy who has never committed to anything, with a guy (the other male lead)who has always been about commitment.
I totally get the fact that the other guy is in love with the small town girl he left months ago, but clearly she has changed dramatically. At first you ask yourself why he would continue to want a girl who has become such a daffy hippie. But you have to realize that he still thinks of her as who she was before.
There is some balance in terms of the portrayal of different cliché types of the 60s era. The hippies are exposed as posers and the soldiers as neither patriotic nor traitorous. They were just generic young dudes trying to survive, albeit the more conservative lead volunteered and had that honor code as part of his personality.
At first I didn’t really understand why the Hemsworth guy would even like the blonde he meets. He’s a soldier and she’s just some stupid Leftist. But then I understood that he admired her commitment to anything, since had never been committed.
This is a low budget film with plenty of plot loopholes. Neither guy went to see his parents on leave from Vietnam in America. One guy falls “in love,” in less than a week.” There’s a pristine lake for swimming and no one else is using it, except our lovebirds on a beautiful day.
There were more anti-Vietnam War statements than pro or neutral, so if that upsets you, you may want to stay away. But if you have patience, you may appreciate the theme of love inspiring soldiers.
The movie did not rely on a clichéd soundtrack of classic 60s songs. There may have been a few, but I don’t remember any, so it could not have been too obnoxious.
