Pen-Ek Ratanaruang's return to the crime-noir genre where he first made his name hits Thai cinema screens in November following a successful run on the international festival circuit. And with the approaching domestic release comes a new Thai trailer for the film.
Present-day Thailand is rife with corruption. Tul, a straight-laced cop, is blackmailed by a powerful politician and framed from a crime he did not commit. Disillusioned and vengeful, he is soon recruited to become a hitman for a shadowy group aimed at eliminating those who are above the law. But one day, Tul is shot in the head during an assignment. He wakes up after a three-month coma to find that he sees everything upside down, literally. Unaware of whether the condition is medical or a result of karmic retribution, Tul begins to have second thoughts about his profession. But when he tries to quit, roles are reversed and the hunter becomes the hunted. Then he meets a girl that turns his world even more upside down. Can Tul find redemption from the violence that continues to haunt him?
From the director of 6ixtynin9 and Last Life in the Universe comes a crime noir about a man trying to forget his past but his past - and karma - won't forget him. Adapted from the novel "Fon Tok Kuen Fa" (Rain Falling up the Sky) by award-winning writer Win Lyovarin.This new trailer features a good amount of footage unseen in the earlier, international offering.
