John Lone's dancing is the best thing about this film
27 September 2008 | by (Eugene, Oregon) – See all my reviews

The only thing I really liked about the movie was John Lone's dancing. I was mildly amused by his accent, which for all I know could be a typical Balinese accent, but to me it seemed affected and was merely amusing. The film is set in Phuket, Thailand, as is clearly stated in the story, though Lone's character is indeed supposed to be Balinese. Though I had some sympathy for Wendy Hughes' character, I didn't really care about any of the characters, none of which seemed that well-developed. The local color was adequate rather than inspired. Another commentator mentioned the behind-the-scenes soap opera regarding the writer and the director, which is somewhat interesting, (if true,) but how can we really know, and does it really matter?
