Midnight My Love feted in Deauville

Did I mention that Citizen Dog won the Critic's Prize at the Deauville Asian Film Festival? I did.

However, I didn't mention that another Thai film, Midnight My Love, won the best script prize. Seems the jury loved this sombre tale of a loner cabbie (Petchtai Wongkamlao) who develops a relationship with massage parlor girl (Woranut Wongsawan), which takes a crazy turn about 3/4ths of the way through.

It's insane enough that I want to watch it again, but this being a Sahamongkol release, the DVD has no English subtitles. Too bad. Have to catch it on an overseas release, someday, hopefully.

Anyway, it seems Woranut attended the festival and was the toast of this Normandy resort town, Soopsip reports.

"Everywhere we went fans asked for her autograph and wanted to take photographs," producer Siwaporn Pongsuwan was quoted as saying.

Midnight My Love or Cherm was the big-screen debut of the popular TV actress. She's won several prizes for her role, including best actress from the Bangkok Critics Assembly.

Midnight My Love is next headed for South Africa, where it'll screen at the Durban Film Festival from June 14 to 25.
