Storyline

Moon-faced Sombat, a middle-aged taxi driver, usually works the night shift in Bangkok. He is an old-fashioned "straight arrow" and the greatest enjoyment in his lonely life is to listen to old Thai songs and Thai classical music late at night on AM radio. One evening a kindred spirit, Nual, a young and very pretty massage parlour girl, enters his cab at midnight after finishing her shift. She makes a deal with him to give her regular rides to work, but their relationship soon becomes more of a friendship. He takes her to his favorite noodle shop to eat, and she takes him to McDonalds for his first-ever burger. He then takes her to his favorite dance hall where they watch older couples dance to oldies, and she takes him shopping in a glitzy mall where she reveals her dream of owning a bridal shop.

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Dull...
11 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jaturanrasamee's latest offering may be an interesting study of modern-day Bangkok, but it lacks warmth.

There is little character development: Bati is likable, but an idiot and a victim, with radio as his drug.

There is very little character development and the plot is contrived. Anything good that happens is followed by immediate cosmic retribution. Actions are not consistent with consequences: a known murderer is able to exist in the same societal context without the police being aware of him? We get no background story on Nual, one of the main characters.

The visuals of Bangkok prevent this from being a waste of time, but just barely.
