Storyline

In Bangkok, in a low-budget hotel called "Heaven", the fate of four guests are interconnected due to a theft in a room: Sean, a paranoid English drug dealer, that is dealing with a powerful local drug lord; the also British psychologist Rosa, who is grieving the loss of her son and making a research with poor children in Thailand; a seriously wounded killer, hired to kill the mobster; and Wit, a thirteen years old abused bellboy, that steals the guests. In the end, we see that it is almost impossible to control life, and sometimes, a subtle incident may lead to fatality. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Seamlessly told intersecting plots
23 November 2006 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a group of tourists getting involved in each other's lives in a sleazy and dodgy Bangkok hotel.

This film is told in a non linear way. It has intersecting plots involving several characters, and these are all executed and mixed together seamlessly. The characters are developed very well, and the viewers can relate to them easily.

The plot is excellent, full of suspense and thrill. It shows that how one little action of a person can have profound effect on another person! It kept on the edge throughout the movie! The cinematography is also excellent.

Another film that has intersecting plots mixed together in a non linear way is the Oscar wining Crash. I think, this film is in many ways equally good, if not superior to Crash. It is a great pity that this film does not have wider recognition than it currently has.
