Nonzee recreates the life of a notorious late-1950s gangster. Dang Bireley's (nicknamed after his favorite soda-pop) had Elvis and James Dean fixations and lived predictably fast and died predictably young. He first killed a man at the age of 13, and became famous in Phra Nakorn as a Chinese protection racketeer from the age of 18. Everything swung his way until one of Thailand's many coups d'etat imposed martial law and drove the city's gangsters up-country. Dang and his loyal cohort Piak had little trouble facing down the local hicks, but bristled when forced to operate a long side their arch-enemy Pu, known as Bottle-Bomb.Written by

The number 2499 in the title refers to the year according to the Buddhist calendar (which is 543 years ahead of AD). This would make 2499 BE (Buddhist era), the year 1956. Thailand is the only country that uses this system. See more »
An interesting gangster movie that tells the true story of Dang Bireley: A Thai boy born and bred in an area controlled by the "Pra Nakorn" Bangkok gangs. He is 13 when he kills for the first time, and the rest of his short life is nothing but a bloody, violent and tragic descent into hell between Bangkok and South Eastern Thailand, where these mafias turned a peaceful fishing community into a US airbase and R&R area known as U-Tapao Pattaya.
