Catherine Deneuve plays a plantation owner who searches for her adopted Vietnamese
daughter Camille (Linh Dan Pham) after the young woman falls in love and becomes a
communist revolutionary. "This intimate and tautly scripted work interweaves layers
of deep affection with stirring historical details of 30s French Indochina, maintaining
throughout an unshakable tension of a world about to change" (Toronto Festival of
Festivals). Winner of the 1992 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. French
with English subtitles.
