La película es una muy buena adaptación de la novela del mismo nombre. Me gustó la novela y por eso decidí comprar la película, que también me ha gustado. Me parece muy destacable el papel del siempre buen actor Michael Caine.

Por a walther - Publicado en

Graham Greene's novel The Quiet American continued (at the time of 2002 release of Quiet American movie) to be sold on the streets of Saigon, aka Ho Chi Minh City, as a 'true' document to the history of 20th century Viet Nam.
This is one of many interesting references made in the commentary of THE QUIET AMERICAN (from stars Michael Caine - fought as a 19 year old in Korea(!) at the same time QUIET AMERICAN is taking place - as Brit journalist Thomas Fowler; and Brendan Fraser as The American; and Executive producers Sydney Pollack(!); and Australian Director Philip Noyce reminds: "...Aussies had soldiers in Viet Nam too..." all speak well of themselves as well as the 100's of Vietnamese used as xtras in front and behind the scenes wanting to do their part to represent the Vietnamese in this important personal story...)
THE QUIET AMERICAN is one of those rare movies that feels longer than it is, but is actually a good thing since there is so much history and wonderful period detail of Saigon circa 1952, for example.
Seeing this, again, with subtitles and listening to commentary is nothing less than a marvel of historical significance and further understanding that I would replay scenes and dialogue over and over as the clarity of the not welcome French Colonialists (eventually) inspired Ho Chi Minh to say he preferred 100,000 Americans in Indochina as opposed to any French (in 1952)!

Also, of note, is the fact THE QUIET AMERICAN was delayed release in the U.S because a preview audience just days after Sept 11, 2001 did not react well to (basically OSS -- becoming the CIA) Graham Greene's controversial and debatable, Anti-American stance.
This is one of those reviews I want to 'cram' in so much info, but I do not want to say too much for those who don't know a great deal about the novel.
Laos, Cambodia and the "17th Parallel" were 'born' from this period in time.

Christopher Doyle's cinematography is nothing short of perfectly vivid.
Amazing cinema. If you liked the political dramas "Under Fire" (Nicaragua), "Year of Living Dangerously" (Indonesia), and/or "Salvador", you should thoroughly enjoy this edition to a great, important genre of film.
5 stars! This movie truly deserves more recognition. Watch it once. Watch it again. Use the subtitles and Commentary.
This QUIET AMERICAN blows the, uh, Audie Murphy version away, to put it mildly.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas The More Faithful Version 16 de febrero de 2016
Por Terry J. Carter - Publicado en

This version is much closer to the book, as written by Graham Greene (the British journalist, not the Native American actor). People who "can't handle the truth" did a complete reversal, and produced the Audie Murphy version. Greene was really "embedded" rather deeply in Vietnamese mud at times; the outside-Saigon parts of the movie actually have an autobiographical basis. See also the old "The Ugly American" with Marlon Brando.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas The Quiet American: A Movie about Contradictory Human Values 22 de julio de 2014
Por Harald Jan - Publicado en
Formato: DVD Compra verificada
In his novel, "The Quiet American", Graham Greene takes us on a trip deep into the human psyche as the seemingly superficial story about an English reporters love story with a local Vietnamese girl and the introduction of an American CIA agent camouflaged as an Embassy representative in the 1950's Saigon, slowly takes us on a tour de force that twists and turns until the reader stands "face to face" with the most important sentence in the book, "Sooner or later Mr. Fowler one has to take sides, one has to remain human."

Graham Greene wrote the book in protest of the Unites States' war mongering camouflaged as "spreading Democracy." "The title of Graham Greene's 1955 Vietnam novel is a joke", writes author Robert Stone in his introduction to the Graham Greene Centennial 1904-2004 the Quiet American deluxe Edition (which I bought here on Amazon). Stone continues to observe that, "the eponymous character is not quiet. Like all the Americans who appear in its deft, succinct story, Alden Pyle (the CIA agent) is a prattling fool; Pyle goes on to illustrate the joke's unspoken punch line: the only quiet American is a dead American."

In the movie by the same name, director Philip Noyce has been faithful to the central theme in Graham Greene's novel, namely as human beings we must choose the humanistic path in order to remain human. This is not a "sheep little film" about love, betrayal, war and politics. It is, however, a masterful and beautiful filmatic presentation of how painful it can be and how much we must endure as humans in order to make the right choices, often under the most severe of circumstances.

In a confusing time like ours with regime changes and social upheavals appearing on the television screens on an almost weekly basis; where respect for human life, integrity and dignity is on a sharp decline, the precision made movie, "The Quiet American" will continue to be a valuable and necessary reminder to all of us of the importance of staying clear of superficial slogans and synthetic regime changes and instead adapt to true, humanistic values.

Sir Michael Caine, Do Thi Hai Yen and Brendan Fraser each play out their roles with convincing intelligence, style and truth-wordiness.

The well known and greatly appreciated English actor, Sir Michael Caine makes a memorable impression in the "The Quiet American" for which he was Academy Award Nominated for best actor in leading role, 2003. Several of Caine's classic films have been remade, including The Italian Job, Get Carter, Alfie and Sleuth. It was reported by Empire magazine that Caine had said that the movie "Harry Brown" which was released on 13 November 2009 would be his last lead role, but he later declared in the Daily Mirror that he had been misquoted by the magazine.

The Vietnamese actress Do Thi Hai Yen is well known for her superb interpretations in films like "Song of the Stork" (Singapore), by Nguyễn Phan Quang Bình (Vietnam) and Jonathan Foo (Singapore). The film received the "Best Feature Film" award at the Milan Film Festival in 2002 and was nominated for Grand Prix award at the Paris Film Festival in 2003.

We know the Canadian actor Fraser James Brendan from his portraying of Rick O'Connell in the three-part Mummy film series (1999, 2001, and 2008) He is known for his comedic and fantasy film leading roles in major Hollywood films, including Encino Man (1992), George of the Jungle (1997), Looney Tunes: Back in Action (2003)

The Quiet American is a superbly well made film, with breathtaking cinematographic beauty. A filmatic experience of the highest order definitively not to be missed! Five Stars+

I made this film the basis of a lecture I gave in a film studies class. Michael Caine was superb. The scene where he cries in the bathroom brought the same scene in Greene's novel to life in a way which humanized the character more than Greene was able to. That said, I loved how closely the film followed Greene's novel and on a human level surpassed the novel. The depiction of Vietnam in the 50's turns the country itself into a character. Having seen Branden Fraser in The Mummy, I didn't expect much, but the guy actually can act and his depiction of naivete run amok comes off very well in this film until we learn at the end that it was all an act.

I appreciate the communist perspective of Graham Greene, getting the flip side view of Vietnam, which, unfortunately will probably never be able to be verified.

As for the movie, Michael Caine - very old, sickly bulging eyes, but what a VOICE. His voice alone carries this movie, along with some beautfiul elegant scenes of Vietnamese women.

I read some wiki on Graham Greene, and the Ugly American, etc, surrounding the ideas in this movie. I think the reason I gave it only 3 stars is because of that same thing, there is something in Americans that just lacks grace, lacks art. That same "Americanism" (lack of understanding/caring/depth) Graham and Company complain about is also in them, and their middling movie.
