Do Not Buy!!!!!!!!!
Tia Pham Cowling | San Diego, CA | 06/28/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The dvd was professionally done. Unfortunately, I don't think that it depicted the reality of families in Vietnam. The producers portrayed the typical "city" family lifestyle as one of luxury. It's difficult to believe that the average "city" family in a Third World Country drives a new sedan and and has a housemaid. Oh, I also forgot the grand piano.

The filming of the "country" family was well done (too well done). The family scenes were idealic and serene. I think that the producers wore their rose-colored glasses when they were filming this. It made life in the country seem like a vacation.

I'm not sure what audience this dvd was trying to target but for those who want realism, I would recommend something else."
