A visual poetry of the life of a couple combined with a traditional Thai art Bai Sri and Buddhist philosophy written in a little complex but profound way about friendship and love ... Pitch and Shane, who were once lovers, are trying to heal the pain of their lives, reviving his ancient romance through the manufacture of traditional Thai ornament that is made of leaves and flowers and symbolizes love and virtue. When Shane discovers that Pich is dying, he decides to be a monk forever, for those who look for a melodramatic story without doubt it is worth.

If you are looking for a sweet boy love story, this isn't it. Turn away now if you are looking for Love Sick, Make it Right, SOTUS, or anything like that.

This is a love story, but there are many sad parts to go along with the love. In fact, the whole movie is a bit bittersweet, but that was OK. What I didn't like was the gory parts in the end. I guess it was the point of the movie, and is very dramatic about how they go about expressing it. This movie is definitely what I would call R rated, or at least meant for a mature audience as the saying goes. Don't eat dinner when watching this, and don't watch if you have a weak stomach.

The cinematic performance and directing was fine. I can find almost no faults in that. The music was appropriate, and gave feeling to the story. The story was a little hard to follow at the end, but I guess it makes sense if you think about it more as a broader theme rather than the exact actions going on.

This movie just wasn't my thing, I prefer a little more positive or happy spin in my shows and movies, and this was a bit depressing or even disturbing depending upon how you look at it. That is the reason for my low overall rating, and rewatch rating. This probably would probably win awards at a film festival, but sorry to say, I won't watch this again.
