orn euy srey orn - s. sisamouth + r. sereysothea
BN: No accolade in words is quite good enough for this classic movie. I saw only a few Khmer movies, but of these, 'On Euy Srey On' is the most outstanding and most memorable [for me] in pre-war Khmer cinema making. Every scene ebbs and flows so naturally; every facet of the movie - the acting, the storyline, the camera work, the background music as well as the songs scheme and weave the tension, the poignancy, the hope and anguish of the characters into a masterpiece of story-telling, creating a flawless tapestry of moving visual art. If you happen to view this movie again watch out for the acting of the little boy at the beginning where he is desperately trying to organise a meal for the family without rice supply in the house. Finally, if anyone thinks that School of Vice is susceptible to lapses in concentration or to occasional absent-mindedness, just watch the scene in this clip! 12 out of 10!
