Thank you all for your moving reviews! I'm feeling very connected to the audience, who I believe can relate to my family story on a deep level, no matter where you are from. This film is about how family is affected by trauma and attempt to deal with it, the patterns that emerge, and the deep wounds to address in all families. Whether your family has gone through the Vietnam War, some addiction or dysfunction, or inability to relate or connect, Oh, Saigon is a story about these connections or disconnections within all of us. Set in a backdrop of a war, a family attempts to survive emotionally intact from being physically and politically divided. This film is about love, acceptance, making right our wrongs, and opening ourselves up to the present moment, no matter what we've suffered. The human spirit emerges as we witness Van survive the horrors of being left behind in the chaos of war, Anne, for her guilt and denial, Nam, with his hiding of his past from his family, myself, Doan, trying to fix it all and rescue and confront her family. I'm proud of this movie as it captured an historic moment in time and how these events have an effect on the people who survive.

I just watched this great documentary and had to review it. My father was an American soldier in Vietnam and was disabled from the war. I've always wondered what happened to the refugees and those that were left behind. The film maker covers assimilation, family strife, and the perils of war in a very simple yet effective way. I hope she makes more movies. I found it fascinating how her father and uncle fought on different sides of the war, and have completely different takes on it. Her mother seems to hold ill will towards the Americans that stopped fighting for the south, while her father seems very broken from losing his country. Wish the film had been more than 1 hour. I could definitely learn more from the characters in this movie.

What a gem of a little independent film! Doan Huang pares away any superfluous material to leave us with just the essentials of a story about human frailty, the horror of war, and the strength of family. Calmly retold, but seething with emotion, her story can be understood the world over and shows just how powerful family ties can be, in spite of a lifetime of fear and doubt spawned by a war that tore a country apart. The resulting rifts in her extended family certainly caused years of heartache and longing, but Huang also shows real reconciliation and healing in her narrative. The beauty of this film is in treating such a complex, epic tale with such tenderness and simplicity and doing justice to it. It leads viewers to consider their own families with gratitude and conclude that life IS beautiful!

Great viewing for immigrants in exploring their issues. Gives people an insight on what a person loses and gains in immigration.

For me this was a very interesting and insightful film on a particular aspect of the Vietnam experience. Don't get to see too much quality output on the topic. Definitely, and necessarily, stoic.

Family is family, the world over and this family, despite adversity and horror most of us will never know, despite the usual family issues, travels across the world to heal. Beautiful.

This is a very personal and emotional documentary. A lot of families who went through any war would empathize the situation like this family. Great presentation!
