Creator/OliverStone[='s=] third film about UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar, following ''{{Film/Platoon}}'' and ''Literature/BornOnTheFourthOfJuly''. These three films are often said to form a "trilogy", although they merely share subject matter and do not take place in a shared continuity.

Released in 1993, ''Heaven & Earth'' is most notable for telling the story of the war from the Vietnamese perspective, a viewpoint which Stone had been criticized for excluding in his two previous Vietnam films. The movie is VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory, being adapted from the memoirs of Le Ly Hayslip, a Vietnamese peasant girl who married an American soldier and became a humanitarian in the U.S.

* GenreKiller: The 1980s fad of Vietnam War movies came to an end with ''Heaven and Earth'', which either killed the genre or confirmed that it was dead now.

* RuleOfDrama
* SemperFi: Averted mercilessly.



* YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters: The Viet Cong, of course. The people in Le Ly's village are very supportive of the V.C. and her brothers go off to fight for them. Ultimately, however, the V.C. are shown to be [[NotSoDifferent just as murderous and despicable as their American enemies]].
