'A great writer who spoke brilliantly to a whole generation. Prophet-like' Alec Guinness 20040624

Into the intrigue and violence of Indo-China comes Pyle, a young idealistic American sent to promote democracy through a mysterious 'Third Force'.

As his naive optimism starts to cause bloodshed, his friend Fowler, a cynical foreign correspondent, finds it hard to stand aside and watch.

But even as he intervenes he wonders why: for the sake of politics, or for love?
