Two awards for Guan Muen Ho in Osaka

GTH's hit 2010 romantic comedy Guan Muen Ho (กวน มึน โฮ, Hello Stranger) won two awards at the fifth Osaka Asian Film Festival, which wrapped up on Sunday.

Director Banjong Pisanthanakun won the Most Promising Talent Award and Guan Muen Ho also won the ABC Award from sponsor Asahi Broadcasting Corporation, which will buy the movie's TV rights.

Banjong, half of the duo that made the hit horror thrillers Shutter and Alone, traveled to the Osaka fest with Hello Stranger male lead and co-writer Chantavit Dhanasevi.

The festival's Grand Prize went to the Hong Kong film Lover's Discourse by Derek Tsang and Jimmy Wan.
