Film Title: The Quiet American

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 the three become swept up in a
tempestuous love triangle. Pyle offers what Thomas, married to a devout Catholic who
refuses to divorce, cannot – marriage and an escape from war-torn Vietnam. Disaster
looms; nothing, and no one, is as they seem, in this adaptation of Graham Greene’s classic
and prophetic story of love, betrayal, and murder
