CGiii Comment

You would be hard-pressed in finding a film as weird as this!

The actors are completely committed to the director's vision...the result is a bamboozling range of emotions.

The metaphor is straightforward enough...find your voice, be true to yourself...but, the execution is hypnotically off-the-scale.

Mad, daft brilliance.


No trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

The film follows the convention of Thai cinema during the Cold War, where every actor is dubbed by the voice that suits their roles. The hero sounds heroic and the villain sounds villainous. Ang, a transgender sex worker with a pretty, feminine voice is assigned a special mission as an undercover spy. She disguises herself as a cis-masculine man to enter into a romantic relationship with Jit, a belligerent yet idealistic student activist with an evil voice. Ang must extract important information from Jit. However, the mission goes awry as she slowly falls for him. Apolitical at first, Ang is slowly awakened by Jit to see the other world where people speak in another way.
