When we lose in love, the isolation can reveal our true character. Are we tempted by our lower tendencies, give up in despair, or just somehow find the fortitude to carry on? One Evening After the War is a love story by Cambodia’s greatest film director, Rithy Panh. Shot in visually beautiful neo-realist style, it offers rare insights into Cambodian culture. It is invaluable for scholars of the complex period of history to which it pertains. And without ramming it down our throats, it is a commentary on the political plights of Cambodia and one of its biggest problems – young women forced into prostitution. One Evening After the War was screened in the Certain Regard section at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival. -Edited from a review by Chris Docker (eyeforfilm)
