Identification of a movie title

Post by KhmerMovieFan » Sun Dec 08, 2019 1:22 am

Hello dear forum readers

I recently bought a Cambodian folklore movie (year 1994, I believe) on VHS videocassette.

Unfortunately I don't speak the Khmer language, but I would like to find out the title of the movie, as well as the director's name, and actors/actresses names.

It would be great if someone could type me the exact wording of the original Khmer title (so I can copy paste it), and possibly identify given names on the cover.

Please see attached photos.

IF you have similar movies and consider selling some of them, please contact me.
Thank you very much.

Well thank you so much, Username Taken!

Khmer writing is beautiful but very hard to figure out without language knowledge.

I think the director's name should be Kong Buncheoun.

Thanks for the info on the two actresses Bitte_Kein_Lexus as looking them up on Google shows that both were involved in attempted assassinations with Pisith being fatal and Touyt's leaving her paralysed. In both cases the attackers were not identified let alone caught but what was very interesting was to read where HE's wife was said to be involved in Pisith's death by way of jealousy as it was believed she was having an affair with HE.
HE's wife threatened the French magazine with libel however quickly shut up when they said they had enough evidence to prove she was involved and would bring it to court if it went that far.

Thank you very much Bitte_Kein_Lexus and also Jamie_Lambo for the translations and interesting background information on the actors. Amazing!

I have at least two other films of Tep Rendaro, រឿងកូនពស់កេងកង (The Snake King's Child) (2001) and Phomkris chombak (A Lonely Town of Phomkris) (2003).

If you happen to know people who might have similar (older => 1990s and older) films about Cambodian folklore or ghost stories on VHS cassette, I would be very interested in buying them.
