Thai title: ลูกสาวพระอาทิตย์
Main actor: Sorapong Chatree,Pao Porapak,Lak Apichat
A Japanese soldier is stranded in Thailand. His plane crashed. He is rescued by a Thai family. The Japanese gets married with their daughter but she dies when giving birth to a daughter. Twenty years have passed. An armed group arrive in the village. They are looking for the old Japanese gold that is supposed to be hidden inside a cave. Yem (Sorapong Chatree) is protecting the group. Another armed group is already occupying the area. Gun fights occur between the two groups. Following various fights, kidnapings and so on... the Japanese former soldier triggers an explosion inside the cave so that nobody can get the gold. Phra Athit (พระอาทิตย์) means sun but also gold. This movie has nothing to do with the movie "ลูกสาวพระอาทิตย์" shot in 1968. It is a typical grade B action movie from decade 1980s with kung fu fights and gunfight sequences. It includes a little of romance and a lonesome hero who prefers to stay in the forest than going back to modern world. Favorite sentence of such movies is "cha tham arai to pai" (จะทำอะไรต่อไป) - What shall we do next? During the anti-communist years, Sorapong Chatree played soldiers and mercenaries in perhaps 100 action films. Most of these were low-profile, though some were popular as they played to the national sentiment.
