Low budget but high density

A Czech tourist gets arrested in Thailand for smuggling heroin. He is sent to prison for 50 years. But what has really happened? We find out through watching his vacation footage he recorded before everything happened, and through investigation made by his brother who is trying to help him. Sometimes the movie feels like an action flick, then it's a documentary, just to switch to a drama... and all of this keeps happening with 4-5 languages switching back and forth. The camera is often very shaky but that goes perfectly with the many styles in which this movie was brewed. Overall, it kept me on my toes the whole way, and although some parts were pretty B-style, it was a great enjoyable "different" movie for the afternoon.
