Lots of action [plus
female-cat fights] but it's marred by a confusing narrative caused by
internal problems during post production (see below). Essentially,
think of this as a Thai version of Bourne Identity. Sophita
Sriban plays a character working for the CIA's assassin squad who is betrayed
and abandoned by her own team leader. Years later, the two female agents
cross paths again and fireworks erupt during a hunt for a Middle Eastern
film ran into a major post production crisis just before release in 2007.
It was supposed to be the debut for sexy model [and University student]
Chotiros 'Amy' Suriyawong. To promote the movie, she appeared at the
'Thai Film Awards' show on February 17 wearing a revealing black dress
[see pic, right], exposing significant cleavage and telling the
reporters that she wasn't wearing any underwear. A moral backlash against
Chotiros erupted in the Media, resulting in the owner of Sahamongkol Films
to order "All footage of Miss Chotiros will be deleted from the next
film. I don't want my actresses to dress that way. We are not a porn production
house. And this goes against Thai culture. She is also banned from any
of our future films." Re-editing caused a year delay in the release
and unavoidable problems with certain details in the story. The dean of
Thammasat University, where Chotiros attended, forced her to make a public
apology and demonstrate how the dress had 'in-sewn underwear.' As a punishment,
she was further ordered to perform community service which included reading
books to blind children for 15 days.
