Honestly, during the first 20 minutes, I thought the movie was not particularly promising and it felt a bit too much like watching a TV "lakorn" (Thai-styled soap opera). But soon it took on a totally different level and I realized this is probably one of the most touching Thai drama I have ever seen.
Me... Myself (Thai name: ขอให้รักจงเจริญ) tells a story of Tan, a mild-mannered young man with amnesia, and Oom, a soon-to-be-successful professional woman. Both are from entirely different worlds and have nothing in similar other than their wounded pasts and hearts to be healed. Tan may be luckier that he already forgot his past, but Oom is hanging on the edge of sanity and would probably have been consumed by anger and despair if it wasn't for Tan's extraordinary gentle and kind nature. In the process of healing each other, the two fall in love. But before they could do anything about it... Tan's past finally catches up with them and it is beyond anything Oom could have predicted. The revelation is abrupt and shocking (well some of you might have figured out what it is from the DVD box and the poster art, but I'd rather not give a spoiler).
I think that's where this movie shines. It handles "the revelation" and what comes after with great care and sensitivity. This part of the movie is very touching and just solid in term of story telling and acting. Ananda Everingham (Shutter) as Tan again proved he's a talented drama actor and is just perfect for this kind of character. Among many impressive scenes, one particular really stuck in my mind. It was when Tan was walking alone and crying on his mobile phone. It was a very short scene but that was all it took to capture the pain the character must have had. Chayanan Manomaisantiphap as Oom is great too but sometimes I wasn't feeling much chemistry going on between her character's and Ananda's. Another notable actor is the boy, Monton Annupabmard, who did a very good job in his last scene.
This movie is not perfect though. You'd be disappointed if you expect some grand or highly sophisticated cinematography. Thai movies these days are doing great in this area. Me... Myself is a bit behind. I think this is one of the reasons why at first I felt like I was watching a Thai TV soap, or perhaps a Thai movie from 10 years ago.
Also, the ending of the movie, even though satisfying, is slightly abrupt. But that is probably the point the director wanted to convey. This is not about the future not yet seen, it is about the happiness of this very moment.
