Wake up!
1 January 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The genius of this film is that it uses sub-plot to mask its main plot: this is NOT about whether or not the lovers squeeze a happy ending out of their situation; rather it is about how the main character Na gets her brother back and makes her family whole again. It starts and ends with this. It is nothing short of brilliant of this director to have hidden this right before our eyes through tapping into our prejudices about sex and relationships. If you don't get this of course you will find this movie full of question marks and loose ends. Also the pace of this movie is perfect; it is the pace of life in Thai towns. Those who don't understand this may have been to Thailand but unless they have wasted an entire day or more waiting to get somewhere have not had an authentically Thai experience. This movie is a good example both in how it tells its story and the technology of the lives it portrays of how global culture is evolving into something beautiful and subtly expressive. It apologizes for nothing about Thai culture, and, like Thailand itself, shows a vitality that is capable of assimilating what it likes from ours without losing even a shred of its integrity. I congratulate this director and everyone associated with this film, it is a gem!
