SAMUI SONG (Directed by Pen-Ek Ratanaruang) ***
Beautiful Viyada is a bored Thai soap opera star
married to a Belgian Buddhist sculptor who insists she come to the prayer
meeting. A rape happens in their home, and one suspects it was with the consent
of her own husband. It is she who is raped by the Buddhist leader, so she hires
a man to kill her husband. She changes her life to escape the hell of it all, retreating
into a village, but the assassin hunts her down and blames her for his mother’s
death; he never got paid, as she escaped. It was very convoluted at the end, as
she ends up happily married to the man who raped her.
