Well worth watching
6 September 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I watched this film in Thailand, without any subtitles. And despite the fact that I cannot speak Thai, I managed to completely understand the film, and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. I urge anyone who gets a chance to see this film, you will not regret it. And if anyone knows when and where I can get a copy of this film on DVD with subtitles, please let me know.
