Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The film's many dangling threads... are obscured by a crescendo of sentiment that's hard to resist. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, May 1, 2014

Rotten: One can't help but think that in the hands of a shrewder filmmaker like Errol Morris, this stranger-than-fiction account would have been absolutely riveting. – Martin Tsai, Los Angeles Times, May 1, 2014

Rotten: A nakedly manipulative film, intercutting missionary Faunce's history with shots of a ludicrously glum and silent family dinner, and indulging in some treacly sad-face piano music. – Chris Packham, Village Voice, Apr 29, 2014

Fresh: A documentary that sends its audience on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. – Bruce DeMara, Toronto Star, Sep 19, 2013

Great documentary!

Loved this movie, fascinating story, superb film making

Loved it

I heard about this film when it played at Hot Docs, but I didn't get the chance to see it at that time.
I was moved by the story and the dedication of this vet, Tom Faunce who never gives up.

Family DNA test

After the movie the family conducted their own independent DNA test. Guess what? The guy in the movie wasn't John Hartley Robertson. The guy pretending to be a US soldier appears to be just what the military, Green Berets, POW/MIA NGOs, and journalists who have long reported on MIA issues have claimed he is: a hoaxer.
