The Deer Hunter remains an astonishing, powerful and vivid epic about three men, steelworkers from Pennsylvania, whose lives are changed irrevocably by the Vietnam War. When Michael (Robert De Niro), Steven (John Savage) and Nick (Christopher Walken) are captured by the Vietcong, they are forced to play Russian Roulette by their brutal captors, who make bets on their survival. The experience of capture leaves them with terrible physical and spiritual wounds and when Michael returns to Saigon to fulfil an old vow to one of his friends he makes an unexpected, horrific discovery.
Once seen, never forgotten, director Michael Cimino`s sensitive, painful and evocative film packs an emotional wallop and won 5 Oscars including Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Christopher Walken, Best Director, Best Picture, Best Sound and Best Editing.
