Wonderful Town

The film is set in a sleepy coastal town in south Thailand that is recovering from the tsunami. Ton (Anchalee Saisoontorn) arrives from Bangkok to oversee the construction of a resort. He randomly decides to stay in a dull but clean hotel run by Na (Supphasit Kansen). And inevitably but gently they fall in love... There is a fine line between exquisite stillness and boredom. Few directors know how to draw that line. Aditya Assarat is one such director.
