(Tae Piang Phu Deaw)



Lek and Kong are respectively a would-be locksmith and a wouldbe
writer, spending their time in an unusual way: they break
into homes not to rob people, but to live their lives, while they’re
visiting. They want to be other people, put their clothes on, eat
in their pans, before carefully putting things away. Yet having a
taste of other people’s lives is not without social and psychological
risks. Kongdej Jaturanrasmee’s first feature Midnight My Love was
developed during a Produire au Sud session at the 2003 F3C. His
new film is as risky as the lives of its two characters. As the story
unfolds, narrative layers get blurred, dream and reality become
one, identity and otherness are uneasily defined. The comical
portrait of two young urban losers turns into a questioning about
owning and borrowing. Indeed, the film-maker also borrows from
other, famous Thai films. One may pick up a reference to Apichatpong
Weerasethakul in a sensual scene shot in the jungle… CG
