This film on the life and death of Ho Chi Minh is a skillfully interwoven blend of old still photographs and newsreel footage of the DRV's (Democratic Republic of Vietnam) founder, a man whose life spans three revolutions, three continents and three wars. It portrays his life: from militant student to revolutionary lead of this country; and his life-long work dedication to the Vietnamese people and their struggle for liberation. This eulogy was made by Cuba's renowned filmmaker, Santiago Alvarez. Musical soundtrack, Spanish titles. (Note: Understanding of the Spanish titles is not necessary for full enjoyment of the film.)
" . . . one of
the most moving political films this reviewer has seen . . ."
