More about Kod, a.k.a. Handle Me With Care

The films directed by Kongdej Jaturanrasamee are among my favorites, those being the frankly sexual comedy Sayew and the woefully under-appreciated comedy-drama Midnight My Love (Cherm), which I wish in vain would be released on English-friendly DVD.

Since hearing about his upcoming new film, Kod, and seeing it described as a story about "a three-armed man and a big-bosomed girl", I wanted to find out more, so I went digging. There are posters and a few stills on More searching turned up a Thai Wikipedia article about the film, which states its English title as Handle Me With Care.

Trailers for Kod, due to open on February 21, supposedly exist. A link to YouTube from turned out to be a dead end to a removed video. A bit more searching turned up a page at Ad In Trend, but I couldn't get the thing to work. I'm sure more will be turned up in the coming weeks by other diggers.

Kod is being produced by GTH, which marks a move for Kongdej, whose previous two films were with Sahamongkol.

Kongdej is also a sought-after "hired gun" screenwriter. He did last year's Me ... Myself, the crazy Noo Hin: The Movie and 2004's weepy box-office smash, The Letter. And, yes, he wrote the screenplay for Tom Yum Goong, but do not hold that against him. I wonder if he had the phrase "where is my elephant!" stored on a hotkey on his keyboard?
