|อีติ๋มตายแน่ is the first Thai
movie I ever saw, so it holds a special place in my heart. Although my
Thai isn’t exactly fluent yet, the movie itself – with the help of my
wife – is quite easy to understand and enjoyable.
The movie stars Thai comedian Udom “Nose” Taepanich and Japanese
Here is the synopsis as described on FilmAsia (I edited the text slightly to be more grammatically correct):
Ei-Ting (Udom Taepanitch) is participating in a boxing show in Pattaya.
He meets a Japanese tourist named Itemi (Asuka Yanagi) and
falls head over heels for her. In the end, Ei-Ting has to prove his
love for Itemi and prove that he can be a champion boxer.
The movie is incredibly funny and absolutely worth watching if you are a fan of Thai culture. Check out the trailer and some promotional photos from the movie below. You can purchase it at eThaiCD.com, but be careful that you order the correct version, as the original DVD is in PAL format (US players are NTSC format).
