Storyline

Director Patrice Leconte 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. Written by Nathan Southern

Patrice Leconte takes his camera to Asia
25 April 2006 | by j-woodSee all my reviews

Patrice Leconte is a major mid-career French director and so anything he puts out will be of interest to Cinephiles. This is something of a departure however as it is a non-narrative, music only feature. It comprises a stream of images from Cambodia - people crowding onto motorbikes, fields of crops, villages, temples - with a driving musical score. It is only just saved from being a tourist travelogue and the total lack of editorializing or other context may annoy some. The point of reference is presumably Baraka and, in another vein, Koyaanisqatsi. It is beautifully shot and occasionally hypnotic but overall an acquired taste.
