Pause for a moment with the Concrete Clouds teaser
THIS MOVIE TEASER SHOULD BE PLAYED LOUD! But maybe not at work. Or, if you're in my office, turn it up.
Finally, Concrete Clouds (ภวังค์รัก, Pavang rak, literally "subconscious love"), the directorial-debut feature of famed film editor Lee Chatametikool, is making its bow in Thai cinemas. Following a tour of the festival circuit, the film is opening on September 18 for an exclusive run at SF Cinemas.
He's cut a nifty one-minute teaser to get local audiences revved up for the 1997-set Bangkok family drama. It features the song ""Mai Mi Laeo" ("ไม่มี แล้ว ", "No More") by the '90s earworm crafters Pause. It is a rocking blast from the Bakery label. The band was fronted by the inimitable singer Joe Amarin, who died in 2002 at age 30.
The movie, oh yeah. There's a movie. It stars Ananda Everingham as a guy named Mutt, a U.S. trader who turns up back in Thailand for his suicidal dad's funeral in 1997, just as the economic bubble burst. Apinya Sakuljaroensuk also stars, in all her mirror-smashing glory, along with Janesuda Parnto.
Thank you, by the way, to Wichanon Somumjarn for help in Pause's incredible backstory. Do click the song link above for the video of the band.
As a bonus, here's another video that was released by Dazed Digital. It features the music of Pookie (ปุ๊กกี้), "Kho-Kae-Me-Ther" ("ขอแค่มีเธอ").
