Ka Kee 2003
Starring: Ying Turaluck
Time: 95 minutes
For those who are fans of dull simulated sex,
this is a movie for you! Especially simulated sex in which there is nary
a glimpse of nudity and all you really see are close ups of faces contorted
in pleasure and hands clenching the sheets. Personally, if I never see
another scene like this again it will still be too soon. Give me Bollywood
any day in which sex is played out in seductive dance numbers – the ultimate
in safe sex! The fact that sex has been had of course may be important
to the plot of the film – so instead I wish filmmakers would just emulate
the days of silent film and put up a placard stating “Sex scene with much
writhing and moaning by all involved” or “Sex scene in which the woman
looked like she would rather be doing the laundry instead”. Movies such
as this would then take up so much less of one’s life.
Aree (Ying Turaluck, the cutie from Phra Apai-manee)
seems to be living the good life, but fate has her in its line of sight.
She is young and beautiful and married to an older wealthy fellow who adores
her and pampers her. They live in a huge house that has its own 18-hole
golf course right outside their backdoor – and as he jokes “and the 19th
hole is waiting for me inside”. Yuk yuk. One day the husband invites another
rich fellow over to hit some golf balls and with one look at Aree this
guy decides he has to have her. So he kidnaps her, but instead of forcing
terrible things upon her he takes her shopping and more shopping and then
more shopping. It must be the way to a woman’s heart I guess because Aree
finally consents to go to bed with him and decides she wants to stay.
The husband finds out and isn’t too pleased and
so sends his nephew – who has his own designs on Aree – to bring her back.
This is just the beginning of Aree’s bad luck - for her and for all the
men who fall in love with her during the course of this seemingly endless
film. The only thing that might keep you going as it did me is that Ying
is quite nice on the eyes and the DVD journeyed all the way from Thailand
just for me and so I felt obligated to finish it no matter the cost to
my personal well being!
My rating for this film: 2.0
