"Depicting life under Cambodia's brutal Khmer Rouge regime in harrowing detail, ' Funan' tells the story of one family that lived through years of separation, starvation and forced labor while trying to maintain a semblance of hope. It's not an easy subject for an animated film, and this one is probably more suitable for adults and teenagers than children, yet director Denis Do manages to make such a difficult story feel both personal (it was inspired by the life of his mother) and emotional."
