Good Morning, Vietnam

Vietnam in 1965 — yet tranquil resort with hot sun, beautiful girls and free service. But one morning there was a deafening explosion... of laughter, when the air army radio first came out a new presenter Adrian Cronauer. He immediately became a crowd favorite and the enemy of the high authorities. Indeed, this comedian with his jokes and unpredictable behavior represents a real threat to military discipline. But when the radios hear his famous greeting "Good morning, Vietnam! "it seems in this Sunny country will never be night...

The war in Vietnam back when they want to make a serious movie that will be called great years after five or ten, but and immediately. "Platoon" by Oliver stone Apocalypse now by Francis Ford Coppola, "full Metal jacket" Stanley Kubrick, "casualties of war" is Brian de Palm trees... the List is great, and obscure productions in a little. But Barry Levinson not for specialist, it maybe a little blow, to make the viewer shed a tear, but to stress the obvious truth that the war — is hell, not become. But without this film is a sincere work, as "rain Man".

Radio — the only outlet for soldiers war. Letters come infrequently, and TV in the time, but now, not very shabby. In General, invisible heroes were the speakers, but to chant the news list — it is boring. And its great diversified Adrian Cronauer, who arrived in Saigon in Greece. Not only that, he wakes the country shouting "Good morning, Vietnam", but and is ready to fill air in different voices, to each picking up a certain image and character, and appreciate it modern rock music. In overall, almost every preference to crossing the road senior title.

Military authorities in the demilitarized zone in contrast ordinary humor is not understand there understands, but purely a soldier. And they are happy rid of the speaker, ready to read unofficial news. And Adrian he wants troubles in your own words, and also an attempt to make friends with the local population, although not all his new friends to be harmless. And Adrian will have to look at the blood, the fire, hear the screams and moans, to imagine how the soldiers feel. He tired with joyful exclamations at the radio, only the choir please regular guys sent in Vietnam, shows him what good thing he does.

Well, Robin Williams often plays in comedies, at this film almost immediately becomes clear, for whatever reason. He so inimitably playing the fool in air studios, that it energy not hold the CRT TV or liquid crystal monitor, it breaks captures the person looking. So that even fragments of the peaceful Vietnamese life (interspersed with military boats, SUVs and helicopters) force the inner voice to demand "return of the speaker to the microphone!" by the Way, in the movie "Good morning Vietnam" and on the forest Whitaker can be viewed. In that time, "the last king of Scotland" few she knew it, so he was given the role of fat jacks with a silly laugh, but true to friendship.

The impression of view spoiled only Russian language. To the text of the comments is almost there, but that's dubbed voice on our TV unnatural and so disgusting. However, DVD solves the problem, it is always possible a few times to click the mouse or buttons on the remote control to hear "Gooood Moorning, Vieeetnam!"

Good morning, Vietnam !

Up to this point has looked 8 movies one of my favourite Directors Barry Levinson. On his first the movie "Diner" review from I have been here is the second in the queue was by chance, "Good morning, Vietnam!".

Well, in the first one can not tell about a stunning actor Robin Williams in he simply gorgeous, but as in all other. He there had amuse and play a very dramatic way, I was almost had to cry.

Very good story, great camera work and the movie just looks and interesting. Yes there are affected the various topics of the war in Vietnam all about the war in General, but as has already it became clear from my past reviews I am not a fan of poking around in the film to go into depth review all the pieces. For me the main thing that the movie looked easy, exciting. And all I pulled out of film myself if something teaches me something of the one or other paintings I prefer to leave in itself.

This movie was "Good morning, Vietnam", and has earned my...

One brave voice of ordinary, seemingly not can make a lot of noise, but if he sounds in war on radio, may be even more important than the voices of all the officers and politicians put together.

For the year before the release of the film which brought Director Barry Levinson worldwide recognition, he took one Comedy drama about a war embellishment unnecessary pathos. In this war there winners and losers, and there are people who are fighting for the survival, see them die. friends and close. And the only bright spot in their lives remain cheerful voice of new broadcaster that is able to laugh even in such a hopeless time.

"- Sir?! Stripe count is not know?! I that — officer?! Three top three on the bottom, what is the conclusion?
- Only six."


Once the main character landed in Vietnam, knowing that his boss sooner or later will want from getting rid of him, he started an active campaign for the unity of fellow Americans and local residents. Extraordinary talkativeness Adrian of Cronauer helps him quick to make friends, which he has something to teach as and learn from them. For limits Studio is a war, there people are dying, but inside it creates a very warm, fun atmosphere that is transmitted on every radio in the County. This guy instantly debunks the myth that work DJ on radio war is unnecessary and useless. He his jokes, tomfoolery and good music raises the mood of those who every day sees the death, destruction and wakes thought that only live up to the next day. Robin Williams is just great in this film. It hero its very first broadcast was the last Bastion of soldiers, giving them the hope somewhere in even have some good, bringing joy and distracting from all-destroying war.

Well played a young forest Whitaker who plays the role of modest and good ordinary, always ready to help the hero, which talent to get involved in different stories. Good and the actors Bruno Kirby and George. T. Walsh, to embody such different military, both of which are sophisticated ways for a long time unsuccessfully trying to rein the Joker of Cronauer.

Originally a film idea how the Comedy, but at one point, the creators of tear the curtain, presenting the viewer what occurs in fact. The film is impregnated and good humor, and sharp sarcasm, making fun of everything related to military service. Especially goes to the notorious censorship, which closes the mouth truth produces air only news, hiding dirty politics and the true state of things. Most fully the issue of censorship shows a scene when two characters go on mined the road, on whose insecurity would tell about the radio, but silent. The soundtrack in this film is mainly provocative, as and jokes of the main character, although the famous song of Louis Armstrong sounds here are very sad because of the terrible video number of deaths and explosions that’accompanies. Barry Levinson has created a terrific tragi-Comedy, then laughing, then to bitter tears.

" You from new York? Vietnam — the place for rent. And nerves tickle, and draw it out."

there is Nothing that raises the spirit of the military on service in a foreign country, as heard daily at local radio jokes from the newcomer enlisted in that would any began to improve the mood of their colleagues.
