I was lucky enough to be at the world premier of Mekhong Full Moon Party in Vancouver. The director and producer were there and joked that the reason the theatre was packed was because most people thought it was a movie about the famous full moon parties held on the beaches of Thailand! He invited those disappointed that it's not about this to exit the theatre, he won't be insulted LOL! Well, this movie had a lot of charm, as well as laughs and some sad moments too. There is some really beautiful cinematography when they show the river at night when it's raining, and also when the fire balls come shooting out of the water. I've seen at least 30-40 Thai movies, and this one is my favourite. It deals with a rather serious matter in the publics faith in religion, and at the same time keeping it light in true Thai fashion.
