PAD THAI: FON TOK KUEN FAH [ฝนตกขึ้นฟ้า]

2010/06/28

Pen-Ek Ratanaruang reportedly starts shooting his new movie called FON TOK KUEN FAH this month. The movie is based on a novel by Win Lyovarin and is said to be a film-noir hitman movie. Nothing against his last two movies but I am looking forward to Pen-Ek returning to more “noir” territory (even without Takashi Miike playing a gangster). We hope to get more information soon.

UPDATE: READ THE FULL REVIEW HERE! – – – – – – – – – If you’ve got nothing else to do here’s a chance to dig some camp: SIN SISTERS 2 tells the story about 5 women who got themselves into an awkward situation and the only way out is to sacrifice their own lives. Or maybe not?

Not sure if anyone would publicly admit to be a fan of SIN SISTERS, but if you are you’ll most probably enjoy SIN SISTERS 2. Directed by Sukij Narin, starring Rungrawee Barijindakul, Saruta Reungwiriya, Patchuda Panpipat, Tichacha.
