Danas sam pogledao ovaj film koji me je na neki način potresao. U moru melodramatičnih filmova ovo je za mene nešto sasvim drugačije.
Film sa mnogo duše i potresnim krajem.
Maek, je mladić, ubica koji dobije zadatak od Mafije da otme i ubije mladog Ihta. Međutim u Meak pred šefovima odbije da to uradi i u pucnjavi koja zbog toga nastane biva ranjen. Zajedno sa Ihtom onako ranjen bježi. Onako ranjenog Iht ga odvede kući i njeguje ga kako bi mu se zaliječila rana.
Pri svemu tome zaljubljuju se jedan u drugog. Meak navikao na ubistva i nasilje, nemože sebi dopustiti ni da pokaže osijećaje ni da se zaljubi, posebno ne u muškarca. Nakon jedne noći u kojoj su sebi dopustili da strast nadvlada razum, zbunjeni Meak otjera Ihta od sebe. Iht se stalno vraća, moleći meaka da ga razumije, da ga voli i da mu nedostaje.
Meak zna da ih mafija neće ostaviti na miru. Osim toga kući ima majku i brata koji boluju od AIDS-a.
Film je prožet prelijepom muzikom koja ublažava surovost siromaštva u podnožju velelepnih zgrada Bangkoka.
Sjajna gluma, odličan scenario i dobra muzika učiniće da vas ovaj film prilijepi za ekran.
Nakon što je film završio ostao sam mislima o tome kako ne možemo sami odrediti trenutak ni osobu koja će nam osvojiti srce.
Preporučujem vam da pogledate ovaj film.

Bangkok Love Story (Thai: Puen, literally “friend”) is a 2007 Thai film written and directed by Poj Arnon. A gay romantic crime action drama, it is the story of a man who falls in love with a gunman who is assigned to kill him.
A loner gunman named Mhek is assigned to kidnap a police informant named It, but Mhek has a change of heart when he is ordered to kill It. In a gunbattle with his employers, Mhek is wounded, but It grabs Mhek’s gun and returns fire. The two men then escape on Mhek’s motorcycle. At Mhek’s rooftop hide-out, It tends to Mhek’s wound and finds himself attracted to Mhek. While giving Mhek a bath one day, It initiates sexual intercourse with the hitman. Conflicted, Mhek demands that It leave him alone. It returns home to his fiancee, Sai, but is no longer interested in continuing a relationship with her. It spends his days pining over Mhek, and tracks down Mhek’s brother, Mhok, and their mother. Mhok is HIV positive, as the result of sexual abuse by his and Mhek’s stepfather, and their mother is dying of AIDS.
Mhek’s dream is to take his mother and brother away from Bangkok to the mountains of Mae Hong Son Province. But after Mhek’s mother witnesses Mhek and It kissing each other, she commits suicide by hanging herself. It’s fiancee, Sai, also witnesses the kissing by Mhek and It, and terminates their marriage plans. Meanwhile, Mhek’s former employers are gunning for him. It decides to take matters into his own hands, and goes to Mhek’s bosses’ hide-out and shoots them both. Mhek, meanwhile, is planning to meet his brother at the railway station to leave Bangkok for good. But before he can board the train, he is apprehended by the police and sent to prison.
Years pass by. Mhok dies of AIDS at a hospice in northern Thailand. It visits Mhek in prison and reveals that he was left blind in the final gunbattle with Mhek’s bosses. Eventually, Mhek is released from prison, and It meets him. But before the two men can leave to start their life together, Mhek is gunned down by an assassin. It eventually gets his sight back, and the first thing he does is to look at his mobile phone, which has a picture of Mhek on it that he took many years before.
