I love this movie. I like it more each time i watch it. It helps if you are a fan of Cambodia or at least of Southeast Asia in general. The scenes in Germany where the male lead lives during the time the narrative takes place are less interesting than the Cambodia scenery but most of the film is in Cambodia so that isn't a big distraction. Many westerners will not relate to the "love story" since the cultures are so different but watch with an open mind and enjoy the scenery. Cambodia is a poor country but a fascinating one. You will either want to visit immediately after watching the movie or not at all. I can't wait to go back.

Dec 30 2016, I found this a little slow. Cambodia doesn't look like a place that I'd want to live in. However, to each his/her own! I guess it had a happy ending. One thing I've learned about being a parent.....you can't tell your kids what to do....they have their own minds, and their happiness is in their own hands! I guess that's the way it should be.

It's a shame that you do not have the scope to see what this film is showing us. It's not an original story by any means but that never should matter, it's how the story is said. For you to say that this is "incredibly pointless" you must have something to back it up with (besides a negative re-telling of the plot). Have you lived in Cambodia? Or any Asian country or speak the language? Have you ever loved someone from the opposite end of your financial spectrum? Have you ever loved an Asian? I bet the answer is negative on all counts and therefor your insults of this film amount to nothing! Try reading a professional film critic and see how they write about a film they did not like. If you were a policeman I bet you would take someone to trial without any evidence...just because you didn't like the person?
