Really powerful documentary
14 November 2010 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see this film in Cambodia during a visit there. There was a huge crowd of both Westerners and Cambodians to see this and a second documentary "The Girls of Phnom Penh". This documentary showed that not all of the clients that come to the brothels are Westerners, but are mostly Cambodians. The parallels of what they believe and what African societies believe about sleeping with a virgin are eerie. Cambodia has a huge problem with human trafficking and sex slavery, and films like this need to be watched so that more people are informed of what is the problem and the reasons behind it. The girls who are interviewed give powerful and moving testimonies, and this is a film that is not to be missed.
