Three family dramas for the price of one in Love First

Five Star Production brings together three stories about families in Love First (Khob Khun Thee Rak Kan, ขอบคุณที่รักกัน), which hits Thai cinemas this week.

The directors of this romantic-drama anthology are Peerasak Saksiri, who previously wrote the screenplay to the hit historical musical drama The Overture; Putipong Saisikaew, who was one of the "Ronin Team" behind Art of the Devil 2 and Sayombhu Mukdeeprom, the longtime lensman for Apichatpong Weerasethakul.

The cast includes veteran soap actress Lalita Sasiprapha nee Panyopas, best known outside Thailand for her roles in Pen-ek Ratanaruang's 6ixtynin9 and Ploy, and the young starlet Apinya Sakuljaroensuk, who made her debut in Ploy.

However, the two Ploy actresses appear in different segments – Lalita as the wife of a soldier in southern Thailand while Saipan Apinya is the mentally ill sister of a music student (Patchai "Pup Potato" Pakdeesusuk) traveling around the countryside with an eccentric professor (veteran character actor Somchai Sakdikul) .

There's a trailer (embedded below).
