Synopsis
A documentary that premiered in competition at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival, Regret to Inform analyzes the Vietnam War from the point of view of the women who lost the men they loved. Interweaving interviews with American and Vietnamese women, the film also centers on the documentary filmmaker Barbara Sonneborn, who learned on her 24th birthday that her husband (and sweetheart of ten years) died in the war. Twenty years later, Barbara takes her camera to Vietnam to retrace the final steps of her husband, hoping to finally set aside her unanswered questions. Through Sonneborn and the women she meets, viewers are reminded of the horrors of war and see that a single bullet has an effect far beyond the body it hits. ~ Arthur Borman, All Movie Guide

This film is beautiful -- visually, musically, and so well crafted and layed out that it is a worth an hour of anybody's time on that basis alone. That it concerns such a sensitive subject makes it even more impressive, and worthwile.
