Synopsis

Chris is a young US soldier who has just arrived in the Vietnam War, and is torn between the influence of two sergeants: the tough Barnes and the more complex Elias. Based on director Oliver Stone's own experiences in the war, this has some of the most authentically confusing battle scenes ever shot - you get a real sense of the noise, the chaos and of how little the average soldier knows about the purpose of their missions.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
