Storyline

Whilst growing up in rural Thailand, a young orphan girl is taught the ways of magic by her grandmother. But when grandmother falls sick, Dau is lured to Bangkok to find work so that she can buy medicine. She finds herself working in a go-go bar, and her journey from naiveté to maturity is swift. She uses the magical skills her grandmother taught her to her advantage, but in doing so makes enemies within the bar. As her magic gets darker, and the consequences increasingly horrific, she gradually loses control, and something evil takes over. Written by Paul Spurrier

A nicely done little ghost story
6 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

I was able to see P when it screened in Brussels in March at the BIFFF. The story details have already been covered by another reviewer, so I won't go into that. The film looked beautiful up on the big screen, and the colours and composition were excellent. Paul Spurrier is a devoted fan of film (over video), and his choice to work in the traditional media, with limited use of CGI work comes through in the lushness of the final product. Likewise, the sound was handled well, and the subtitling was properly synched. Having a good story helps, too.

There's been some talk of an "angry response" at Brussels, but I was in the audience, and I found it well received, particularly in comparison with how some other films had been savaged by the audience the day before (they're a tough house over there). The film took a lot of applause, and nothing in the way of heckling or other caustic remarks, so I suspect someone is on a crusade of their own.

Now I've got to find a copy of Underground.
