I was deeply moved by this documentary film about a daughter who went on soul searching, root finding trip on bike to trace back where her father's F4C fighter jet crashing site along the Ho Chi Ming Trail in 1972. This film is also a great journey for me to finally get the opportunity to witness the atrocity, cruelty, the absurdity and pointlessness of Viet-Nam war.
The daughter, Rebeca, is a tough mountain biker, who went to Viet Nam and Laos along the Trail to pay a tribute to her father. We saw through her own eyes, her heart and her soul to know why she needed to do this and she had proved that journey indeed was necessary for one of her later chapter of life.
Great cinematography, really realistic and beautiful through the production team's camera. A seamless, also perfect editing,
There's only one thing I like to point out here:
When visiting Huyen Nguyen's home, she should take off her hat when she said hello to Huyen's father; she should also take off her hat during the welcome dinner Huyen prepared for her. This is supposed to be the basic politeness she should learn especially when visiting an Asian family. Taking off the hat, showing respect to the elderly and needless to say, taking off hat at the dinner table should be a basic table manners, no matter in the West or in the East.
