    The movie was moving. Both my wife and I and most of the audience cried throughout the movie. It brought back painful memories that we would rather forget; but on the other hand, it may serves us better to remember them. It's a little long. The story of the main character (Long) should end later rather than sooner. Instead, his story ends too soon, and the new story of his family in The movie was moving.

It's a little long. The story of the main character (Long) should end later rather than sooner. Instead, his story ends too soon, and the new story of his family in California seems like the start of a new movie. All in all, this is a very good movie and a part of American history. Expand

    To tell the truth, Ham Tran's Journey of the Fall hasn't featured the utmost cruelty of the VC and Siamese pirates.

    This movie should be required watching by all residence of Berkley, California! This movie tells the true story of our desertion from Vietnam because of the liberal media agenda in the United States. Many of our soldiers died for a noble cause that the media has yet to address. I only wish all anti war liberals would watch this wonderful movie. It tells the true story the way it was. This This movie should be required watching by all residence of Berkley, California!

This can be sugar coated all you want, but the US had a noble mission that got lost in the US television, newspapers, and radios lop sided view of the war. Expand

    Journey from the Fall re-educates as well as entertains, but never takes the easy way out, nor does it preach. In the end, it's a snippet of one family forever altered, and despite all the political undertones, it's the human level on which the film succeeds most of all.
  2. A movingly rendered, stirringly photographed first feature by Ham Tran.

    A post-Vietnam War boat people saga is launched to compelling effect in Journey From the Fall, a sleek U.S. production.
