Rithy Panh directed this neo-realist French-Cambodian social drama set amid Southeast Asian poverty. In the early '90s, soldiers return to civilian life in Phnom Penh. Living with his uncle, kickboxer Savannah (Narith Roeun) begins a romance with 19-year-old bar girl Srey Poeuv (Chea Lyda Chan), who is trapped by her debts to the bar's owner. Savannah makes the mistake of teaming with an ex-soldier pal for a crime that he hopes will raise money to clear Srey's debt. Shown in the Certain Regard section at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.
