An Affair to Forget, 5 October 2013
Author: Suradit from Thailand

If you're looking for gritty reality, social significance or thought-provoking dialogue, this movie definitely should be avoided.

The story is improbable and ridiculous, but I'd say the first 80% of the movie is mildly amusing ... not because of the situations, but because the actors are fairly engaging at the amateur level. The central character grimaces a little too often and the supposed romantic attractions are definitely credulity stretchers, but it is just a fluff sitcom and decidedly low budget so you'll have to be in the mood to be mildly amused and/or slightly inebriated.

Unfortunately towards the end of the movie the ménage à trois disintegrates and we are expected to feel some sympathy for the predicament our hero faces and to be concerned about how it will be eventually resolved. That's when the disturbing realization hits you that the writer and director are actually laboring under the impression that anyone takes the story seriously or cares how it ends. When the cute, somewhat amusing repartee stops and everyone starts waxing philosophic, you'll start hitting the fast forward button ... if not sooner.
