Thai films at Udine

The lineup for the Udine Far East Film Festival from April 22 to 29 in Italy has been announced. Twitch has the list and has a bit more about the four Thai entries.

The four films are:
  • Art of the Devil - Bang Rajan director Thanit Jitnukul's first stab at horror, it is about one family's disaster after the father's mistress uses superstition to get revenge against him.
  • Pattaya Maniac - Yuthlert Sippapak's fourth film is a crazy comedy involving karaoke singing, gangsters, a bungled kidnapping, Buddhist amulet mysticism and a beautiful girl. Bald comedian Nong Cha Cha Cha starred, proving his dramatic chops.
  • Zee-oui - By veteran commercial directors Nida Suthat na Ayutthaya and Buranee Rachaibun who are also sisters. It's based on a true story of a Chinese immigrant in Thailand during the 1940s who was a cannibalistic serial killer who preyed on children.
  • Born to Fight - From Ong-Bak action choregrapher Panna Ritthikrai, the gritty action is hot and heavy. It stars Dan Chupong, hailed as Thailand's second Tony Jaa, and features a cast of national athletes who use their various skills -- football kicking, gymnastics, rugby, tawkraw, muay Thai, tae kwon do -- to defeat a Burmese druglord's army. Stay for the stunts, ignore the melodramatically overwrought performances.
