Review: One Night Husband

  • Directed by Pimpaka Towira
  • Starring Nicole Theriault, Siriyakorn Pukkavesh
  • Released in Thailand in 2003; reviewed on rented DVD
  • Rating: 3/5

Nicole Theriault and Siriyakorn Pukkavesh from Monrak Transistor give great performances in this drama by Thai indie director Pimpaka Towira. It's the story of a high-society newlywed (Nicole) whose husband goes missing after their first night together. She calls the guy's asshole brother for help and meets his abused, lower-class wife (Siriyakorn). The two then develop a friendship. The film has a great look, with sharp, crisp photography and a subdued mood that is enhanced by the presence of Bangkok's rainy season. It's all for nothing, though, as the result is confusing and implausible.
