Steamy Thai nights provide the backdrop for unbridled romance, crime and action as two men unexpectedly brave forbidden love. Maek, a cold assassin-for-hire, is sent to knock off Iht, a police informant, when in a twist of fate the killer is shot for refusing to pull the trigger. After making their escape, an indelible bond is forged when the vulnerable assassin is nursed back to health by handsome, married Iht. But as taboo feelings of desire swell between the swarthy new lovers, their relationship is discovered. Now there's no turning back as enemies, friends and lovers are pitted against each other.

Moving story however way too over melodramatic
15 September 2011 | by thomvicSee all my reviews

Reading the back of the DVD cover, I was thinking - hmmm OK this sounds alright. So borrowed it from the library and while I did find it moving, the film's main problem is that the love story is developed way too fast to make it feel genuine and pretty much forces you to sob (even though it does work sometimes) rather than making you build up the emotional tension gradually.

I was expecting a romance, action/thriller sort of movie and you mainly get a romance drama which is fine with me with a gangster sort of plot thrown in to heighten the tension. There is a little bit of exploration on living with HIV in the film from some of the characters, however a lot of the character development is pretty minimal and the beginning of the romance between the two male leads didn't make me fully believe that they fell in love so quickly with no real sort of lead up to it and the ending scene, though I found moving, made it more melodramatic which seemed to overflow like turning on a tap at full blast rather than letting it flow at a normal pace.

The acting is pretty decent with the two leads - I thought that love song they used in the film could have been left out as it sort of felt out of place - it would probably fit a really soppy love story. Even though I did feel tears coming up near the end, a lot was sort of unexplained and the director obviously wanted this to be a story that would make you cry - but just don't force it too much.
