In 1975, as the Vietnam War was ending, thousands of orphans and Amerasian children were brought to the United States as part of "Operation Babylift." Daughter from Danang tells the dramatic story of one of these children, Heidi Bub (a.k.a. Mai Thi Hiep), and her Vietnamese mother, Mai Thi Kim, separated at the war's end and reunited 22 years later. Heidi, now living in Tennessee - a married woman with kids - had always dreamt of a joyful reunion. When she ventures to Vietnam to meet her mother, she unknowingly embarks on an emotional pilgrimage that spans decades and distance. Unlike most reunion stories that climax with a cliché happy ending, Daughter from Danang is a real-life drama. Journeying from the Vietnam War to Pulaski, Tennessee and back to Vietnam, Daughter from Danang tensely unfolds as cultural differences and the years of separation take their toll in a riveting film about longing and the personal legacy of war.

Let's just say, we all want to know how and why we got or have cancer. This gives you the beginning of your own story. But, the story is linked to all women who deal, survive, and live on after breast cancer and for those who have passed on. I am telling you, watch this. It ripped my heart out. And guess what? The geneticist that found the BRCA1 and BRCA2, genes that will help prevent so much breast cancer, was a woman, no one believed could do it. She did it. It took time. But watch this movie with a bunch of your friends and you will know, why I am so excited ,for any woman to see this. Amazing. And heart wrenching at the same time and a few laughs... But please! Watch this movie

Ashley H (de) wrote: Boy on a Dolphin is a wonderful. It is about a poor female sponge diver who finds a sunken treasure with a statue of boy riding on a dolphin. The settings in Greece are beautiful. Alan Ladd and Sophia Loren give amazing performances. The screenplay is well written. Jean Negulesco did another great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the adventure and romance. Boy on a Dolphin is a must see.

Zhanyi J (it) wrote: Beautiful camera work for its time. Great character study of how one becomes a good doer and how one slowly descends into evil. Didn't like the ending where good triumphs over evil.
Patrick M (us) wrote: Not awful, but really not good. It looks kind of cheap and despite some decent action, doesn't make a lot of sense and is somewhat poorly made.
Bengel W (mx) wrote: Rather grumpy soldiers seem to enjoy using their weapons to cause mayhem and destruction. In this simple story the actors have a blast at playing in the parts that are more often than not naked. The tractor trailer adds a great set piece to the action providing some well timed fun. Music and sound build to make the action thrilling with an opposite for love. Nibbles: Barbecued Fruits
