Kwan Riam

Thailand 2001

Seen 13 September 2006

A Thai love story. Village boy loves village head’s daughter. Many obstacles along the way – a far richer suitor, girl sold off to pay father’s debts, unsuccessful search for girl in the big city and the ultimate test at the end. The final scene was a bit melodramatic but sits in very well with the whole concept of the film. This is a story interspersed with scenes of the wind and water changing every time a major event happens to the main characters. There are also some songs in the background which highlights the feelings of the doomed couple especially whenever they are having the blues without the other. A sentimental story but entertaining if you just let yourself follow the flow.
