Storyline

In Bangkok, in a low-budget hotel called "Heaven", the fate of four guests are interconnected due to a theft in a room: Sean, a paranoid English drug dealer, that is dealing with a powerful local drug lord; the also British psychologist Rosa, who is grieving the loss of her son and making a research with poor children in Thailand; a seriously wounded killer, hired to kill the mobster; and Wit, a thirteen years old abused bellboy, that steals the guests. In the end, we see that it is almost impossible to control life, and sometimes, a subtle incident may lead to fatality. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Dreadful Garbage Best Suited to Mentally Deranged Rodents
22 May 2005 | by w00fSee all my reviews

Take "Memento," throw in a little "Oliver Twist," add a little "Taxi Driver," and then have the whole thing directed and edited by severally mentally deranged gerbils on crack and you get this completely awful film.

At turns boring, overly bloody, and completely incomprehensible, it's got neither good style nor solid substance. The ending is terrible. The middle is even worse.

Pass this one up... until you happen to be a mentally deranged gerbil on crack. Then it might be worth watching.

I have to add two more lines of type to meet IMDb's requirements for writing a long-enough review. That's too bad, because there really isn't anything else to say about this lousy movie. Ummmm... so, how are you today? How's the family dog? w00f w00f w00f.
