An Ey Srey An

លោក​គ្រូ Frank noted in my last post the debt that Preap Sovath’s great Nom Banchok video owes to the early 1970’s movie An Ey Srey An, which he used to (still does?) regularly show in his Khmer Language classes at SEASSI.

An Ey Srey An is really a great film (my favorite part includes a bear), and the duelling Nom Banchok sellers’ song is a real highlight. They don’t make movies like this anymore in Cambodia, more’s the pity. Here are the two videos together, for your enjoyment and comparison.

h/t to Lokkru, and cheers to Preap Sovath for ‘citing’ this classic Khmer movie.
