Genre: Drama
Rating: M18 (Mature Content)

What it sounds like: A prequel to Jim Carrey’s comedy.

What it actually is: A Thai romantic film staring Ananda Everingham (of Shutter fame) who plays a male dancer in a transvestite cabaret. After suffering from amnesia from a car accident, he falls in love with a free-spirited creative director, who whines a lot more than him.

What it really, really is: A ‘Korean type’ love story that has a lead actress that looks every bit Korean, and with acting skills that would make Fiona Xie's and Dawn Yeoh's award-winning. Ladies often hold their breath looking at the male lead, a cross between Tony Leung and Pierre Png. Slow walks, lost memories, ill-fated lovers, enchanting music and tears-inducing scenes – The Thais can do it as well as the Koreans.

Why it is worth $9.50: Pronounce with me…. Ananda Everingham. With it’s sensitive take on gender issues, Thailand is probably the only country who can film a movie of such context.

Lesson of the day: Before you mock people who are different at Changi Village, they can be just the same as you and I.
