Remake of The Quiet American (1958). Thomas Fowler is a London Times reporter covering Vietnamese radicals' war for independence against their French colonial overlords, enjoying his work for the freedom it grants him to pursue a relationship with beautiful dancer Phuong away from the prying eyes of his nagging Catholic wife back home. Fowler's desirable life comes crashing down when he is questioned about the murder of young American doctor Aiden Pyle, a friend who'd openly competed with him for Phuong's affection.
