Reviews

The Beautiful Country is set in Vietnam just after the war and tells the story of a young man born to a Vietnamese mother and an American father and his subsequent search for latter in the US, via internment in Malaysia. Preisner, whose credits include the Three Colours trilogy, captures the atmosphere brilliantly with both traditional and ethnic instruments, including the kalimba, also known as a thumb-piano.
