Bangkok Love Story

“What movie are we going to watch?”

“A pink film from Thailand,” he said nonchalantly then suddenly like a teenage girl who just saw her crush, he excitedly whispered, “it’s a love story.”

“A Thai gay love story, huh?”

“A Bangkok Love Story,” he said out loud with a smile on his face.

“Oh, aaahmmm… can we watch something else? Something that does not have “love” in the title or hmmm…in the plot?”

“Ah, yeah. Lay off the dark chocolates buddy. You are getting too bitter.” He said mockingly.

“Yeah, can you lay off the cheeses and corn and while you are at it, even the marsh mallows, too?”

*******

“What was that? And they call it a love story?” He protested.

“Great ending, ei?”

“Why can’t they be together in the end? After what he did, they should be together? That’s so unrealistic,” he bickered.

“Bangkok Love Story, a love story. I enjoyed it. Let’s watch it again?”

“Can we stop where it became sad?” He begged.

“Can we start where it became sad?”

“Sure, is that your death wish?”

Wow. Very bold entry, mate. Powerful stuff. Hope all is well. :-)

Oh, and a side note: try "Shelter" - awesome flick, great soundtrack, cheesy ending though. Still very nice.

Saw this film.. I bribed a friend / producer who did post work in Bkk to look for a copy of this one. Just that he gave me the version without subtitles.

WAAAAAAAH!!


The cinematography was impressive. Not like our indie films here, tackling same subjects. Very crude finish. Well, they have the money kasi.

The film was very moving.

@marcus: Thanks! No worries, all is well. :) I think I have a copy of that but just haven't watched it yet. Maybe later. Thanks for dropping by. :)

@carlo: Yeah, it was. The cinematography was excellent. I think that's one of the reasons why I enjoyed the film so much. Not to mention the actor who played Itt was really hot. lol Btw, thanks for dropping by.

The sweetest love stories, often end in deepest sadness. :)

It is because every that is fleeting makes us long for more.
