Storyline

Jan Dara grows up in a house lacking in love but abundant in lust. He quickly picks up the sinful way of life of his stepfather, Khun Luang who married his mother after she became pregnant from being raped. His 'father's' mistress, Mrs. Boonlueang welcomes the young boy into her literal bosom. Wanting badly to know his real father, he leaves the house, only coming back after his stepfather's daughter falls pregnant out of wedlock. He does a favor to his stepfather by marrying her, even though he is deeply in love with his mistress. The truth about his birth, as he will later learn, is as confusing and messed up as his present life and the lives of those around him. Written by lament

A dark film about roles and relationships in a family environment
22 January 2002 | by LouisaVSee all my reviews

The narrator of the film, is left to live with his father after his mother dies while giving birth. The latter despises him and he find comfort in his aunt who is like a mother to him.

As the men in the household seem hardly able to go a day without sex, new characters and children are added to the picture. The relationships and roles of those characters change as the movie progresses, fuelled by strong emotions such as lust and loneliness.

The plot is strong enough to captivate the audience, while the movie itself is eye-candy. Most of the scenes are shot in the house, but they are done beautifully, never getting boring or repetitive. The colours are pale, making the characters even more alive. Finally, the performances are outstanding.

I totally recomend it.
