Hmm...
24 October 2005 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

Don't be fooled by the title of this movie. "Rahtree: Flower Of The Night" has nothing whatsoever to do with trees or flowers. It is actually the name of the main character in this movie, Buppah Rahtree.

Buppah Rahtree is a smart, but troubled girl. Her past is ravaged by sexual abuse by her stepfather, and has had no friends all her life.

The movie starts out like a love story. Boy meets girl, boy likes girl, boy tricks girl… OK, that's not really a love story, but that's how the first 20 minutes go. Ake Dunrongsup is a rich man's son who stalks Buppah, following her day and night. He even buys food for her and leaves it on her doorknob. After Buppah confronts Ake about this, Ake confesses his love for her. Anyway, Ake impregnates Buppah and heads off to further his studies in the United Kingdom. Little did Ake know that Buppah got an abortion and well, committed suicide.

After not receiving Buppah's rent for nearly a month, the evil landlady comes over and forces her way into the apartment and finds her already decomposing body. I know what you're thinking, no comedy yet? Well, the comedy begins when the Thai police come onto the scene. The sergeant in charge was pretty funny in his short but effective role as a bumbling cop. Many other comedic bits follow after this.

The spectrum of characters in this movie overshadows the main plot itself. A lazy shopkeeper and his retarded assistant were the ones producing most of the lighter moments of the movie. Other colorful characters included a couple of obese hairdressing transvestites, a band of fake monks, a clique of hip hop wannabes, the evil landlady and her husband, and a cute girl who helps her father sell rice porridge in a stall nearby.

Mehods of getting rid of Buppah's spirit included visits from the band of 'fake' Buddhist monks, a (real) Buddhist monk, Christian priests, and a Cambodian super monk. All of which didn't work.

Ake comes back to Thailand after not doing very well in his studies abroad. Oblivious to the fact that Buppah is dead, he heads over to her apartment after being kicked out of his own home by his father. Buppah appears in human form to him and welcomes him to stay with her. You'll have to watch the movie to find out what happens after this.

One major problem about this movie is that it is too repetitive. The same scares and actions happen more than once. It is as if you're seeing the same things happening over and over again, but with different cast members and situations. Also, the combination of horror and comedy can sometimes make a scene anti-climactic. The movie's storyline is overall a little too clichéd and weak.

The end of the movie didn't make sense to me, as it didn't really resolve anything. Maybe I was kind of disappointed that the movie had nothing to do with trees or flowers. Haha, but that's just me.

Watch for the "Exorcist" spoof where a Christian priest and a priest in training attempt to 'exorcise' Buppah.
