Storyline

Gentle giant Barney Emerald is drugged and robbed while on holiday in Pattaya. He befriends two Thai sisters, one who can speak English, another who is a muay-thai kick-boxing champion, and stays with them until he can recover his passport. After eating some spicy "somtum" at their mother's restaurant, he accidentally demolishes the place. He vows to find a way to earn the money to rebuild the restaurant. Written by Family Video

Amazing
18 July 2019 | by dedsenicSee all my reviews

The acting was flatout phonemal and the story was beyond great, this movie should have 10 Oscars and should be named the greatest movie of all time
