The actress Linnea Larsdotter flew to Thailand for her screen test. The director Bank Tangjaitrong filmed her for 5 days, acting in versions of scenes from the script, before he choose to cast her as Joanna 1 month later. The recordings was later edited into a visual teaser for the film. See more »
This is an excellent indie adventure drama. The execution of this low budget independent film is very impressive. The script is very solid and the dialogue is real not only because of the writing but because of the cast and direction.
Although it starts of slow and I recommend this film to an indie lover who has not had two glasses of wine before watching, it truly builds more and more and 35 min in, I love the main character and the journey that has begun in Thailand.
The other characters, the backpackers are introduced midway and adds a lot to the pacing of the film.
After finishing it I was left with both emotions and relief.
I highly recommend this film to any art house, indie film lovers also people who like ultra realism in acting and a thought through screenplay. Not too much action I'd say more feeling than through for your mind!
