Journey from the Fall (Vượt Sóng) 2006

Ham Tran's visually stunning Journey from the Fall is not a favorite of the Party.  To date, this film has never been officially released in Vietnam and was denigrated by politburo press outlets upon its release.  At points, it suffers from uneven pacing and some of the drama is overwrought, but this is a well-acted, heartbreaking account of what occurred in South Vietnam after the fall of Saigon in 1975.
