Namtan Daeng to show uncut
The full version of Namtan Daeng (น้ำตาลแดง, a.k.a. Brown Sugar), the anthology of erotic short films released in two parts last year by Sahamongkol Film International, gets a limited run this week at House cinema on Bangkok's Royal City Avenue.
This "uncut" version runs for 2 hours and 40 minutes.
There were six segments of Brown Sugar by indie directors Panumat Deesatta, Zart Tancharoen, Kittiyaporn Klangsurin, Prachya Lampongchat, Surawat Chuphol, Anurak Janlongsilp and produced by Prachya Pinkaew and Bandit Thongdee. For the commercial release, they were split in half, with the first three in cinemas last September, and the second helping in November.
The first batch had the much-talked-about masturbation scene by Lakkana Wattanawongsiri, playing a massage girl who has the hots for a tattoo artist. She later goes to get a tattoo on her pelvic region.
The original theatrical releases were rated 18+. I am not certain at this time what the "uncut" version is rated.
House RCA's Facebook page says Brown Sugar will run for just one week, from March 10 to 16. It has the Thai soundtrack only – no English subtitles.
