In Bangkok, a corpulent European man and a young, pregnant Thai woman live together in near silence. His large body stands out in marked contrast to her tiny frame. He gives her presents - she has a growing collection of stuffed animals - and takes viagra pills. She is looking for security and he is the best way to stay out of Soi Cowboy, the red-light district where they met. She likes him but sleeping with him is a duty. Out in the countryside, her brother, a teenage mafia enforcer is employed to deliver their older brother's head.
About the film:
"an impressive, athletic leap of the imagination"
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ****
"a sure-footed, deliberately-paced feature that boldly wrong-foots us in the final stretch."
- Jonathan Romney, Screen International
"The pseudo realism of commercial cinema is left aside for poetic interpretation and modern visual art... A must-see for cinephiles and cineastes" -PassionFor Cinema
