Old boy + City of God + Goodfella ...Better Than Expectation, 7 September 2007
Author: bscale from Bangkok, Thailand

The movie was scheduled to closing The Bangkok International Festival but I missed that. After I finally see that.I was in awe of the show.

3 friends from the southern Thailand, learned Muay Chaiya. Piak , Pao , Samor went to Bangkok to fight in the Professional MuayThai Boxing.

Their career were included crimes.I saw the world of gangster in Boxing, life of night singer.

In my opinion, its screenplay is very good because the director was professional writer before. (He was the crew in some Apichatpong film too.) It better than other Thai film and maybe better than some Hollywood film.

Screenplay is very good ,so the film is the same..Kongkiat directed very well. He constructed a lot dimensions and artistic of violence.Likes Chan-Wook Park style, violence in this film is so much but he directed the view which had a reason.

The friendship in childhood reminded me of City of God(Fernando Meirelles).Violences in gangster reminded me of Goodfella(Scorsese). And some photographing linked to WongKaWai style.

I liked it so much especially the mixing of variable things.That made it the one of Best Thai Film of all time alongside 15kumdeaun11, Monster, Tin Mine, The Overture...

Very good film,highly recommend who disappointed Tom Yum Koong. But Chaiya isn't only show Martial Art.

It shows the heart of real Fighter.
