Phaen is a suburban young man with a great love for music. He never misses a chance to show off his voice at temple fairs in his village. It is at one of the fairs that he meets and falls in love with Sadao. On their wedding day, Phaen gives Sadao a transistor radio that the new family loves, and it also gives Phaen many a daydream of becoming a famous singer himself. Soon, Sadao is pregnant and it is hard for Phaen to leave home, but he has to enter military service. While there, he enters a singing contest, and winds up first runner-up. So he decides to leave the service and heads for Bangkok to follow his dream. He spends two years in a band that never goes anywhere, and eventually is forced to work in a sugarcane plantation. But a fight causes him to lose his job. As things go from bad to worse, he recalls his transistor radio with fondness, for it evokes in his mind much better and more peaceful times, when dreams were still possible.Written by
I went to watch Monrak...without having ever heard of it and not knowing what to expect. It was enjoyable on the whole...but I felt it became a bit too commercial. The courting scenes between Pan and Sadaw was beautifully executed and was tremendously realistic. Siriyakorn Pukkavesh was delightfully brilliant! I simply loved the song that he sings to her in the room (before the father comes to shoot him). Visually, it was tasteful and well lit.
But, I came out feeling the film was 'stretched' just to fill up the 90 minutes.Too many things happen to Pan and too many situations arise. The "boat doctor' was totally uncalled for and didn't really add anything to the film.
It could have been much better had it been limited to 60 minutes or so.
