Rating: 3.5/4 -- The cumulative effect of Pierre Schoendoerffer's realist approach reinforces the unsparing nature of international conflict. Full Review
Surveying the doomed 1954 retreat of French and Laotian soldiers, Schoendoerffer exposes, with a reporter's eye, the horrors that were and the horrors to come. Full Review
This is a staggeringly engrossing and effective movie, its settings both beautiful and oppressive, its incidents tense and eye-opening.

Shot as news reel footage, Schoendoerffer follows the platoon through the jungle as they are slowly annihilated in ambushes, in attacks and by diseases; capturing the inarticulate anguish and solitude of each man trying to survive.
- Shot entirely in Cambodia.
