The Quiet American is a 2002 film adaptation of Graham Greene's bestselling novel The Quiet American. It was directed by Phillip Noyce and starred Michael Caine, Brendan Fraser and Do Thi Hai Yen. The 2002 version of The Quiet American, in contrast to the earlier 1958 film version, depicted Greene's original ending and treatment of the principal American character, Pyle. Like the novel, the film illustrates Pyle's moral culpability in arranging terrorist actions aimed at the French colonial government and the Viet Minh. Going beyond Greene's original work, the film used a montage ending with superimposed images of American soldiers from the intervening decades of the Vietnam War.
