I thought it’s a chick flix due to its title. Well, I was wronged (moral: never ever judge a movie by its title). I thought it’s almost similar to Johnny Depp’s Chocolate but actually it’s a Thai action movie.
The intro, which was read by a kakkoii Japanese actor, gave me a blow.
“As a boy, I was always interested in the abnormal. I liked to imagine, the history of scar and imperfection. When touching the scars, I felt that there was a story beneath every wound. A small abnormality to me, was something to contemplate”
So, the story is action packed. Not done by stuntman, but a girl. Her name is JeeJa Yanin. Very cute and tough. She’s autistic, but full with strength and willingness to learn martial arts. I think she’s the next Michelle Yeoh, but wayyy cuter with more flexible bones. Her martial art was done for real! No tilam. True blood. I only knew the stunts was real at the end of the movie, when they showed “backstage scenes”. Whoa!!
I thought of diverting my stress and PMS with this movie but apparently I cried. So sad. I would suggest this movie to those who have strong hearts (too much blood and violence in this movie!)
It’s apt to be shown during mother’s day (only if the movie made it through the Lembaga Penapisan Filem Negara or Cencorship board).
Enough said. Check out the Imdb here.
