Maybe Lost in Translation and Culture
5 June 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Thailand, there are people that believe that is they lay down in a coffin they would cheat death and bring good luck. The bride Sue Wong (Karen Mok) leaves her fiancé Jack (Andrew Lin) in Hong Kong expecting to heal her lung cancer and she is well succeeded; however Jack dies. The skeptic Chris (Ananda Everingham) also participates in the ceremony to help his beloved Mariko (Aki Shibuya). However he panics with the claustrophobic situation and dies for 6 minutes and 42 seconds. They have weird visions of ghosts and strange things happen with them. Sue and Chris visit Professor Thanachai (Micheal Pupart) that advised them that they should repeat the burial to resolve their issues and stop the curse.

"The Coffin" is a messy film that begins with horror and ends like a soap-opera, with the encounter of Chris and May. The dialogs are confused and maybe westerns are lost in translation and difference of culture. The truth is that the plot is a mess and hard to understand. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "O Caixão" ("The Coffin")
