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

Nice experiment
1 November 2004 | by (Lier, Belgium) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was a nice experiment. I liked the photography and the combination of B&W and colour in one shot, which makes the colour functional. I also loved the time-shifts and repetitions of shots from other angles. It gives the film its own identity. The general atmosphere of Bangkok as a setting seems quite successful to me. Saskia Reeves as Rosa and Alexander Rendel as Wit are very convincing, more than Jonathan Rhys-Meyers as Sean, who, I thought, has a tendency of over-acting. Of course paranoia is a most difficult role-aspect to act out. The initial scene, where Sean has a dream in which he's shot at, is too much a technical copy of typical Matrix-scenes. Even the sound effects seem to be an exact clone.
