Comments: Tadanobu has several fine comedic moments in this film and Hye-jeong Kang is very cute speaking English. I like atmospheric mood pieces but this is pointless and very very boring. I will give the director credit for maintaining an air of making us think something's going to happen, but nothing ever does. You can't just hold your shots for far too long accompanied by sleep inducing music and call it art. It took me several attempts to get through this without falling asleep.

Summary: After killing his boss's girlfriend (with whom he was having an affair) on his boss's orders, a man (Asano) is sent from Macau to Thailand in an attempt to escape the consequences of his crime and to cover it up. But the relocation doesn't prevent his problems from following him, as his new friends could be potential enemies.
