“Fool’s in love” (sic), a new movie by Poan Phoung Bopha, currently shown in the old Cine Lux with English subtitles, tries to milk the formula of her recent The 25 year old girl, but is an even worse movie. One could probably wax about how this film depicts the reality of the new Cambodia of greed and materialism, where family members become arch enemies over property and where conflicts are settled with machine guns and crooked lawyers. But the film is just so incoherent, badly acted and has some of the most bizarre hair-do in the history of Cambodian cinema… a well, it is just a mess. Dos not watch this movie.
