Vietnam Movies on Netflix

Movies Related to Vietnam, Asia, Adoption

Rated according to Netflix standards, those which are unrated, I saw too long ago(probably in the theater) to remember the rating.

Those movies which say “Not on Netflix” are in the Netflix catalog, but Netflix doesn’t appear to own any copies. They are put into a “Save Queue”. I have seen them from buying the VHS tape on Half.com.
