Ingenuous and intelligent ghost story
2 April 2006 | by jacobdeSee all my reviews

In this movie, which is more complicated and intelligent than most people seem to realize, Bandit Thongdee presents us with a ghost story which tells us that ghosts are not all bad. They may have a problem to communicate with the living because they look and act scary, but they are righteous and very protective. When Young, Pretty and Pregnant Poh ('Sai' Inthira Charoenpura) is brutally beaten and left for dead in a lake by a vicious drug dealer (Wannakit Siriput), she is saved by the ghost of another girl, living in the lake, having been murdered by the same fellow. She was killed for her unborn child, which a sorcerer had ordered from the drug dealer to use for his witchcraft. Poh doesn't die but ends up in a hospital. She thinks she has become a little strange, though, because she sees ghosts and apparitions everywhere. She is also visited by the ghost from the lake, which touches her pregnant belly and scares her. But the ghost is actually there to help Poh, though. She helps her to kick her drug-habit, diverts her from a thought of abortion (with an iron-wire bucket handle), helps her find the ghost's own unborn child (kept in a jar for good luck in a gambling den), and also kills the drug dealer for her (played very well by Wannakit - The guy is really vicious, and doesn't deserve a second of sympathy from the viewer when he plummets to his death). But Poh's worries are not over yet. She has another enemy close to her, who is out to kill her for a whole different reason... Apart from the story, the acting is very good. Sai transforms during the movie from a derelict, rather foul-mouthed drug-user to a radiantly beautiful young woman who really wants to help people out, and becomes interested in life again. She carries this movie very gracefully. Wannakit is also perfect as the psychopathic drug-dealer, as is Aranya Namwong as Dr. Rudee. It is also much fun to see for yourself how many ghosts you can count at your first viewing; there are bound to be more at your second, third etc.
