Storyline

Every relationship has an expiration date. Every relationship needs its fantasies...some more real than others... A violent death of a relative brings Wit and his wife, Dang, back to Bangkok from America, where they own a Thai restaurant, for the first time in 7 years. As soon as they arrive in Bangkok at 5.30 am. Wit and Dang check into a five-star hotel downtown. Wit finds out that he is out of cigarettes once they are inside the room. He goes down to the lobby bar. After getting his pack of cigarette from the bartender Wit decides to order a cup of coffee and smoke his cigarette there. The girl from the table in the dark corner comes to Wit to ask if she could borrow his lighter. Wit hands her his lighter. Then she asks if she could borrow one cigarette too. The girl sits down and lights up one of his cigarettes and they somehow strike up a conversation. Wit learns that her name is PLOY. This is how our little tale of love and jealousy begins. A highly detailed psychological drama ... Written by Fortissimo Films

it's really touching
24 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

DUdeeeeeeee, i saw it today. I'm Thai, and i have to say that there are tons of crappy Thai movies out there. Of course,Thailand doesn't have such a big motion picture industry and most of the movies that make money here are usually retarded comedy movies or blockbuster blasts like war of the worlds or the incredibles. There are many GOOD movies came out here and don't make money at all or released limitedly such as MAgnolia, crash, babel, stay, 21 grams, stuff like that. Ploy fell into the same category with the above list. Ploy didn't make money. Ploy is actually one of the best Thai movies i've seen in a long time. it's good. it's got good story, good dialog (maybe not so good on subtitled, but if you understand Thai the dialog was actually pretty great). The directing was very very slowly but very moving anyhow. i personally love this movie. one of the reasons is because it's totally alienated from the typical Thai ghost, comedy movies. Ploy is really touching. I'm not going out with anyone now but this movie really made me think about 'LOVE' and relationships. There are a lot of changes i would like to make after i finished watching Ploy,but Ploy still made me feel like it wasn't a waste of time and money. It really will get you to think. Give it a try.
