Epithete Films is an independent movie production company that specializes in feature films, run by Frédéric Brillion and Gilles Legrand.



Synopsis  /  Director Patrice Leconte weaves an impressionistic, sensorial tapestry of existence in and around early 21st-century Cambodia. Journeying through the country's farmlands, factories, streets and rural villages, camera-in-hand, Leconte glimpses the people and the elements of the landscape that make Cambodia so culturally specific, and gently contrasts modes of life found there.
