Trivia

The lead character of Soraya has "writhing snakes for hair". To create this difficult effect on a very limited budget, the director decided to take real live snakes and glue them to a wig, and then placed it in on the actress's head. See more »

A visual feast
20 April 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This film is an attempt to revive the once-thriving Cambodian movie-making industry that was decimated by the Khmer Rouge government. Co-produced with Thailand, THE SNAKE KING'S CHILD is based on a folk tale about the child of a peasant woman and a snake god.

For westerners, the film's main attractions are visual. The cinematography is often striking, with atmospheric use of colour and shadow. All the characters wear eye-catching costumes. Actual Cambodian locations were used for many of the beautiful settings. Most memorable of all is Pich Chan Barmey's fabulous snake-hair effect, which easily outstrips any of the unconvincing attempts in western movies to portray gorgons.

Whether THE SNAKE KING'S CHILD will succeed in resurrecting Cambodian movie-making remains to be seen, but it certainly constitutes a promising start.

A letterboxed DVD, with rather eccentric English subtitles, has been released by Hong Kong's Winson Entertainment.
