Summary: Highly recommended!
The movie left me with a different feeling than expected. Thought this would be drama with a lot of comedy. Fortunately, it provided a realistic perspective that may not satisfy everyone, but, was brutally honest most of the time.
Overall, the movie is worth watching more than once. The storyline is supported by an experienced and talented cast that walks in stride with the plot and they are not dragged down by it.

The storyline has depth, authenticity and flows at a proper pace to not feel boring. There is less than 2 hours to transport the viewer back to the 60s to a war and environment where most were not even born or even taught in school especially for non-asians. As a non-asian, I appreciate the glimpse of life and times during that era. The story showed a slice of life of those forced or voluntarily took on hardships to survive. The best part is the viewer can clearly see both sides of those in control and those being controlled without needing to take sides to ostracize anyone. You can see they are human with faults and also some good characters, essentially they are human and you can't put yourself above it while viewing this movie.

The strong cast is a plus in this, as expected, lead by the boyish pure vibe delivered well by Ethan Ruan as the brand new soldier cast into unorthodox surroundings. His facial expressions are the best especially when confused. This calls for a serious role playing of all cast members and they delivered.

The music reflected the times and environment of the late 60s and early 70s in that region. It would not make the grade today since today's music are rarely composed of real instruments. Don't expect modern day techno songs or the latest pop single to make viewers more comfortable. That would stain this movie.
