So amazingly done!!! This is not a tipically movie about war, but rather lets us see a terrible time in history trough the lens of a childs eyes. It really touched me since i went to Cambodia and know their history. Important movie!

Emotionally powerful and tragic. Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge were monsters.

Not an easy watch, and nor should it be, this is an exceptionally well-realised piece of history as seen through the eyes of a child.

It's always risky to pin a movie on the performances of children, but as I watched First They Killed My Father I kept thinking it was a good choice. I came into the story of a family torn apart in the Cambodian Civil War woefully ignorant to who the sides were or what was going on. Pinning our point of view to a child also oblivious put the focus on the human element. I don't know if the performances were good or the language factor hid it, but I had no qualms. I felt what they were feeling. I also kept thinking that humans suck, so it's definitely not a feel good tale. I found it interesting and a worth while watch.
