Set in a southern Thai village that lost thousands of lives to the 2004 tsunami, this understated romance (2007) plays a bit like a ghost story, as unseen forces introduce a subtle malevolence and the possibility of more destruction. A Bangkok architect (Supphasit Kansen) accepts an assignment to help rebuild a devastated coastal resort, and in this depopulated milieu he finds himself drawn to his hotel's lovely proprietor (Anchalee Saisoontorn). Writer-director Aditya Assarat creates atmosphere through spare dialogue and shots of abandoned buildings and quiet streets; when evil finally surfaces in the form of four biker punks, they swoop in like horsemen of the apocalypse. In Thai with subtitles.
