Product Details

Ishiro Honda, the Japanese monster auteur who directed the most memorable films in the Godzilla series, made this unusual science fiction tale. A wave of diamond heists in Tokyo have caused the police to crack down on local mobsters, who insist that they're innocent. While the lawmen don't believe them at first, they soon learn the robberies were in fact performed by no earthly criminals. In this sociocultural documentary from 2004, director Patrice Leconte (Monsieur Hire) weaves an impressionistic, sensorial tapestry of existence in and around early 21st-Century Cambodia. Journeying through the country's farmlands, factories, streets and rural villages, camera-in-hand, Leconte glimpses the people and the elements of the landscape that make Cambodia so culturally specific, and gently contrasts modes of life found there. Etienne Perruchon composed the original score.
