Directed by Rithy Panh, 90min, 1997, Khmer version with English subtitles
August 1992. Savannah, 28 years old, finds himself back in Phnom Penh after four years on Cambodia’s northern front, fighting the Khmer Rouge. Like the rest of his generation, he has known only war, camps, hunger and massacres since he was born. All he’s got left now is his uncle, Sôn, as the rest of the family was entirely annihilated by Pol Pot’s regime. He fell in love with Srey Peouv, a bar girl.
