First They Killed My Father, the movie

First They Killed My Father (2017) is based on the same name book by Loung Ung. The screenplay was by the author and Angelina Jolie, who directed and produced.

It’s such a good subject on a little talked about country but the movie has a weak story, as if none. As I was watching, I felt like seeing postcards, or picturial book. The cinematography is very good as if you’re there. I understood more than other friends who watched together because I was the only one knew about cultural revolution in China. The subject matter, Pol Pot regime during the Khmer Rouge years (1975-9) had rich materials but the movie failed to show.

Jolie adopted her first child, seven-month-old Maddox Chivan, from an orphanage in Battambang, Cambodia in 2002.

I remembered seeing Norodom Sihanouk (1922-2012) Cambodian royal politician and the King of Cambodia, in beijing in the 1970s often.

安吉丽娜·朱莉和同名书的作者合写的剧本, 她自己导演出品. (她第一个孩子是领养柬埔寨的孤儿.) 电影没有什么连串的故事 反而像看明信片 – 摄影挺好 有些身临其境的感受. 波尔布特; 红色高棉 有着丰富的色彩和资料 拍成这样太可惜了. 我们几个人看 就我明白一些 – 他们根本不知道文革是嘛玩意儿.
