The mesmerizing, haunting and exotic score by Craig Armstrong, the Award-winning composer of the platinum-selling Moulin Rouge, is a major highlight. Featuring powerful string elegies (which bring to mind the harrowing feel of Platoon) and mystical Vietnamese vocals, "The Quiet American" is one of the most memorable scores of the year.
Saigon, 1952, a beautiful, exotic, and mysterious city caught in the grips of the Vietnamese war of liberation from the French colonial powers. New arrival Alden Pyle (Brendan Fraser), an idealistic American aid worker, befriends London Times correspondent Thomas Fowler (Michael Caine). When Fowler introduces Pyle to his beautiful young Vietnamese mistress Phuong (Hai Yen) the three become swept up in a tempestuous love triangle that leads to a series of startling revelations and finally - murder. Nothing, and no one, is as it seems, in this adaptation of Graham Greene's classic and prophetic story of love, betrayal, murder and the origin of the American war in Southeast Asia. 2002
