Bangkok Love Story
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 01/10/2008 22:53:39
Thailand is producing some great movies, Tears of the Black Tiger,
Beautiful Boxer,to name two and to add to the list Bangkok Love Story.
Not as polished or slick as Brokeback Mountain and with a few unanswered questions ,like if the the bad guys were after them why stay around in the same house and not escape
But that can be forgiven as the story is moving the two main leads very convincing ,where in Brokeback i could not care what happened to them.
So if you can over look a few minor flaws i recomend this movie i also recomend a box of Kleenex as it made me a grown man cry

Bangkok love story
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 23/05/2008 17:10:03
I saw only the original version with sone Spanish subtitles, it seems to be the first Thai movie having an openly gay love story, and this happens between two killers, so totally out from any gay stereotypes. It offers a view of the life in the suburbs of Bangkok far from Hollywood exoticism. The two main actors are very good and one of them very handsome. A good opportunity to see something different and to know it doesn't matter if you are in the Far East, you live in a Buddhist country, gay life is never easy.
