Storyline

An older Nopporn looks at a simple painting and recollects the story behind it. As a young student in Japan, he once met and fell in love with Keerati, who was unhappily married to an older man, on the couple's honeymoon. He swore eternal love to her, yet she cautions him against it because she is much older than he is. Before the lovers part, Keerati gave him a painting of one of the places they visited together in Japan. The two continued to exchange letters after Keerati returns to Thailand. After a while, Nopporn slowly ceased his communication until Keerati falls fatally ill. Nopporn rushes to her death bed but was unable to help his true love. As Keerati awaited death, she was overjoyed that she would not die without her lover by her side. Written by Ploy Pritsangkul

Not as good as it should be
11 August 2001 | by (Bangkok) – See all my reviews

Khang Lang Phap (Behind the painting) is a forever famous novel for Thais. Many of us start reading it since we were in high school. And because of that, so many people (including me) went to see this movie.

I admit I was at first impressed and almost cried at the theater. But it was mainly because of the story which is almost translated exact word by word from the original novel. Well, the movie it self was good. But not that exceptional good like many people talking. The leading actress (Kirati) deserved compliments, the music was so beautiful, and there was a deliberate old fashion style of Thai film you can feel. However, there were many irritating flaws like the sound, the light, the continuing. etc. It made the movie look so amateur. The worst of all was the English subtitle (which I consider part of the movie). It was quite a big regret to see original emotionally poetry-liked Kirati's sentences were translated lamely and emotionlessly to English.

Well, I give the original novel 10 out of 10. But for the movie, 8 is enough.
