I may be only 13 , but I know my movies . This movie was so good that I forgot what was going on in my room . That's how good it was . Micheal Caine was excellent in there and I never knew Brendan Fraser can play in such a serious role . This remains to be one of my favorite movies.

For the person who dreams of films enhancing their reading worlds, ''The Quiet American'' does it all. Stellar acting by Brendan Fraser and Michael Caine make Graham Greene's world incarnate. Never has Greeneland, that place where morality becomes the central issue and the burden of the flesh palpable, understandable and forgivable, looked so lush and been presented with a coherence unusual in a film adaptation of a major work. The only thing that compares is the Russian ''War and Peace'' where Sergei Bondarchuk fully realizes Tolstoy. In Greene, revolutions happen under our noses, as the band plays and overdecorated administrations become bombastic. Such is the way of the world, then and now, and only faith will save you.

"They say if you come to Vietnam, you'll understand many thing very quickly. The rest has to be lived." Excellent statement on a beautiful and erudite movie. I never saw Michael Caine at his best in this illustrious film based on Graham Greene's novel of the same novel. If one has ever heard people that have been to Vietnam or knows a veteran of that terrible, fratricidal conflict, you understand the mentality of the complexity of that place and that you do learn much more of life. Also Pyle, based on the mysterious General Maxwell Taylor which Greene met in an opium den, is not as politically naive as originally presented and has an insidious side which turns native Vietnamese into terrorists. Very relevant to our own time or any time. That's why violence and the moral implications in this movie and Graham Greene's book will always be pertinent.
