  • Que la Barque se brise, que la jonque s'entrouvre

    2001. Cambodia/France. Written and directed by Rithy Panh. With Vanta Ta, Eric Nguyen. Panh, who directed the award-winning documentary S-21: The Khmer Rouge Killing Machine, brings a similar sensitivity to character, history, and memory to his fiction films. This touching romance describes the coming together of two tender souls: Bopha ("Flower"), a Cambodian restaurateur in Paris who has survived the genocide of the Khmer Rouge, and Minh, a Vietnamese "boat people" refugee who drives a taxi by night and works as a deliveryman for his uncle's grocery by day. In French, Cambodian; English subtitles. 89 min.

In the Film exhibition The Age of Chevalier
