Un soir apres la guerre / One Evening After the War (1998) DVD9
In 1992, over twenty years of Civil War in Cambodia came to an end. King Sihanouk returned to the country, and the first free elections in decades were held. Savannah, who has known nothing but war his whole life, returns from the front where he had been fighting the Khmer Rouge insurgency to a Phnom Penh transformed into a glittering mass of neon signs and all-night bars. Moving in with his grandmother and uncle, his only surviving relatives, Savannah refuses to give into a life of crime, and struggles to get by working odd jobs, and boxing.
One evening, at the dance bar where his war buddy Maly is working as bouncer, Savannah falls prey to the charm of the beautiful Srey Poeuv, one of the bargirls, who, from time to time, also serve the desires of the city’s nouveau riche.
