"điện Biên Phủ" a.k.a. "Dien Bien Phu": Diên Biên Phu is a 1992 film written and directed by French veteran Pierre Schoendoerffer. With its huge budget, all-star cast, and realistic war scenes produced with the cooperation of the French and Vietnamese armies, Dîen Bîen Phu is regarded by many as one of the more important war movies produced in French filmmaking history. It portrays the 55-day siege of Dien Bien Phu, the last battle by the French Union's colonial army in the First Indochina War during the final days of French Indochina, which was soon after divided into North and South Vietnam. This was a prelude to the Second Indochina War, known in the United States as the Vietnam War.

điện Biên Phủ a.k.a. Dien Bien Phu: Điện Biên Phủ is a 2006 manga by Daisuke Nishijima. It tells the story of a 19-year-old Japanese-American photographer, Hikaru Minami, sent to South Vietnam to report for the Stars and Stripes in 1965 and his encounters with a mysterious Viet Cong warrior girl only identified as "Princess." It is distinguished by its peculiar style, which combines simple, anatomically deformed and unrealistic "kawaii" character designs with grim, graphic imagery, subject matter and tone. The manga includes much background material on the conflict, both within the main narrative and in omake appended to the story.
