Storyline

Jan Dara grows up in a house lacking in love but abundant in lust. He quickly picks up the sinful way of life of the man who married his mother after she became pregnant from being raped. His 'father's' mistress welcomes the young boy into her literal bosom. Wanting badly to know his real father, Jan leaves the house, only coming back after Khun Luang's daughter falls pregnant out of wedlock. Jan does a favor to his 'father' by marrying her, even though he is deeply in love with the mistress. The truth about his birth, as Jan will later learn, is as confusing and messed up as his present life and the lives of those around him. Written by Topaz

GOod movie
2 August 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I disagree with the previous comment. The movie is not hard to follow if you have access to English subtitles or you understand Thai. This movie had an enormous budget in comparison to other Thai movies and this is reflected in the higher standards. The story is the story of Jan Dara, a Thai man. As the previous comment said, there is sex, soft-core for Western standards, but very explicit, although not graphic. This was enough to cause an uproar in Thailand when the movie was released. This caused the movie to be censored. Well worth watching if you have any links with Thailand...
