My film is not a movie.
My film is not about Vietnam.
It is Vietnam.
It’s what it was really like.
It was crazy.
And the way we made it was very much like the Americans were in Vietnam.
We were in the Jungle.
There were too many of us.
We had access to too much money,
too much equipment.
And litte by litte, we went insane.
[ Francis Ford Coppola, Cannes 1979 ]
