chef takes leave to travel the south seas
19 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

"Bite" has some very promising elements, but the script needed some major jazzing up. In a big way. The basic story is a good one, but the leads do and say many unlikely things. Lots of big, cheesy lines, but no-one has an ordinary conversation. The chef of an Asian restaurant needs to get away for a while, so he scoots off to the south seas islands. David La Haye is the chef "Gus", who is searching for someone, but nobody seems to know if the guy is dead or alive. On the island, Gus meets up with the very mysterious girl "Lake" (Napakpapha Nakprasitte). We're only fifteen minutes in, and we already have so many unanswered questions. Some beautiful scenery, some terrible karaoke, and still many unanswered questions. Interesting images; the smokey dance circles. Lighting ciggies from the same torches. the loud, obnoxious tourist. Lake quickly and expertly making a hair decoration out of a coconut shell. The little native boy's mysterious warnings. Written and directed by Hunt Hoe. Not much info available on him anywhere. He HAS written and directed several earlier projects. It's an engaging story, if you stick with it. Much strangeness. Has a pretty weird recurring theme... pretty freaky, but still a good story, if you hang in there.
