Alternate Versions

Two different cut versions were released on DVD and VCD in Thailand. Both versions are missing the following footage:
  • A six-minute driving scene in which Tommy follows Orn on his motorcycle;
  • A two-minute scene of Roong and Min driving to the jungle;
  • A one-minute scene of Roong fondling Min's penis (with a clear view of Min's erection in the process). The original Thai release is missing an additional scene:
  • A ten-minute sequence of Orn and Tommy making love on the forest floor. The UK DVD from Second Run and the French DVD from mk2 are uncut. Both versions of the Thai DVD/VCD were withdrawn when the Thai censors decided to ban the film.

Unusual impression
18 March 2008 | by karolWuSee all my reviews

That's not a regular film but rather an unique example of art film. It's more an impression of the director then a drama or romance or anything else. The way how Weerasethakul makes movies one can love or hate.

The main character is a Burmese refugee, Min, who seems to be in love with a Thai young woman,Roong. While she's at work an older woman, Orn, takes care about Min. Once Min and Roong go for a picnic into the forest, where they meet Orn. The background of the movie is a nationwide crackdown on illegal Burmese immigrants in Thailand.

Slow shots, beautiful landscapes, strange plot construction, mysterious details, and somehow erotic and unclear relationship with two women and young man creates a great but very specific kind of cinema.It's a beautiful impression of human relationships.
