Based on a Thai legend. Mak leaves for Bangkok and is seriously wounded in the Chiang Toong War. His wife, Nak, dies together with her stillborn child, but when Mak returns, they continue to live together, without his being aware that she is a ghost. But the forces of the supernatural realm eventually prove that such co-existence ultimately leads to an unexpected resolution. Written by

Nang Nak is the first Thai film that has got Thai people back watching Thai films. It is Director Nonzee Nimibutr's second film.
Unfortunately foreigners will not understand the legend behind this film. It is a true story and the legend is very much alive in every Thai person's mind. The Temple (Wat MahaWoot) is still an active temple and even today people flock to the temple to get good luck (lucky numbers) for their lottery tickets.
The story has been told many times in film and also for television - but it still has a great impact on the Thai.
The film is well worth watching. The sound is excellent. There are a few problems with English sub titles but overall the Director did an excellent job. Small budget, good casting, excellent sound.
