One of the best Thai movies ever!
5 May 2006 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

Absolutely one of the best Thai movies I have ever seen! I stay in Thailand around 9 months a year and try to see all the Thai made movies I can. Mostly they are disappointing but 2 or 3 every year are special. This falls into the special category.

This one stars Bongkoj "Dak" Khongmalai, one of the most beautiful Thai movie stars. Far and away her best performance to date. From my understanding though, all the nude scene utilized a stand-in, sorry to ruin the fantasy. :) Originally this was a television miniseries that ran sometime in the 80's. It's a morality play with a good message about not jumping to conclusions when you only have anecdotal evidence. This film will also show you a nice piece of rural Thai life, quite different for the ultra-modern hustle and bustle of Bangkok. No English subtitles, and probably will never be, but we can keep hoping. So start studying the Thai language!
