Storyline

It's 1939 in Siam. The Japanese are threatening invasion and the Free Thai movement is gaining momentum. Angsumalin, the beautiful daughter of a military leader, says good-bye to her friend Vanus, who is going to England to study. She won't promise to marry him, but will give him an answer when he returns. The Japanese invade, and circumstances bring Angsumalin together with Kobori, an idealistic Japanese captain, who is also related to a powerful Japanese general. Although she despises Kobori, she agrees to marry him for political purposes to protect her father and the Free Thai movement. In 1944, Vanus returns and the conflicting rivalries and emotions come to a head. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Thailand's gone with the wind

This epic story of a love between a Japanese naval officer (played by Thailand's biggest star Thongchai Mcintyre) and a Thai woman is Thailand's "Gone With The Wind". It's your typical tragic love story that has been told many times before, however Mcintyre was privileged to take on this role twice in his career. The first time was in 1990 in a miniseries version that was an instant success and lasted 26 weeks. And then 6 years later in this film adaptation that surpasses the predecessor in effects, set design and location, however lacks substance that was prevalent in the earlier version. One being the obvious reason that this was a 26 hour story summed up in two hours. However, despite the frown from audience goers in Thailand, the film went on to have international acclaim from Variety magazine and an interview from CNN. This was probably due to the fact that the majority of the world had never heard the story before. It was the first Thai film to have international recognition and English subtitles as well. Please feel free to email me if you would like to know more about Thongchai Mcintyre as I've done a documentary on his life that is mandatory studying at St. John's University for all Communication Arts majors.
