What a shocking book cover! I have not seen it before. Anyway, Greene sets the story just as the French are losing Indo-China and the Americans are stepping in. It is a brilliant and cynical observation of empire and national ambition at the cost of individual liberty and conscience. Or something.

Un americano impasible (2002). En 1952, Vietnam se levanta contra Francia para conseguir la independencia. En este escenario, un veterano periodista inglés (Michael Caine), un joven americano (Brendan Fraser) y una bella mujer vietnamita forman un exótico triángulo amoroso. Nada ni nadie es lo que parece en esta adaptación del clásico de Graham Greene, una historia profética sobre el amor, la traición, el asesinato y el origen de la guerra de los americanos en el sudeste asiático.
