Brother Number One

New Zealand 2011

Seen 26 March 2014

Ratings from other sources
IMDB 8.5/10

Through Olympian New Zealander Rob Hamill’s story of his brother’s death at the hands of the Khmer Rouge, Brother Number One explores how the regime and its followers killed nearly 2 million Cambodians between 1975 and 1979

My ratings 8.0/10

My impressions:

Killings, in the name of the One
The accused still in a world of their own
No discernible regrets
No remorse
Dry eyed

In contrast
Those who remain
Survivors despite that unimaginable period
Have to live
With memories still intact

Many may never know
Where their loved ones have been
The final resting place
A closure
To the nightmare
