[Angkor Awakens] is a comprehensive and compelling film that does justice to the anguished history of Cambodia, focusing on the devastation wrought by the Pol Pot regime and the Khmer Rouge right up to the present.

"Angkor Awakens" won't wow you with artfulness, but as an analytical narrative of tragedy, testimony and a way ahead, it has an undeniable power.

A no-frills primer on the history and prospects of a troubled nation.
