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

This awful movie just apes other awful movies
2 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie's main feeling is, "I've seen it somewhere." If someone did this in the 60s or 70s, maybe someone could say something about it was innovative. But by now, we've seen lots of movies in which nothing much happens other than a few depressed looking characters moping about or staring into the bathroom mirror for ages; lots in which the only affect is mild irritation; lots in which unrelated event lines are juxtaposed because, frankly, none of them are interesting on their own; lots in which someone looks in the camera and breaks into song; and lots in which you get violence quite unrelated to the rest of the movie (except in the mind of those who see a connection between any two things, of these more later). We've even seen lots in which most of these happen. Maybe, the intention is to introduce the genre to the Thai audience, who have happily been spared it so far. Anyway, even the pioneering originals aped by this movie were mostly cheap and bad movies. They rely on the vilest of tricks, which is to frustrate the basic expectation of the audience (such as, "Every scene in it will be there because I need to know," and "The movie will not suddenly change tempo, atmosphere and everything and become another movie"), the result being the poor people are thrown into temporary confusion (which may be fresh the first time) or some of them, those with low I.Q. or low self-esteem, I really don't know how they get selected, into permanent "stunned" admiration. I wonder if the director laughs at these people, for putting his children through school, or is himself "stunned" by what he has done.
