Director: Kongdej Jaturanrasamee
Thai movie P-047 / แต่เพียงผู้เดียว, directed by Kongdej Jaturanrasamee, was released in year 2011. Two men with gloves are entering homes but do not steal anything. They are also involving themselves in life of people by checking their personal items. One of them is a locksmith (ช่างกุญแจ) called Lek and the other is called Kong, newspapers stand owner. Nook's previous girlfriend was called Nook; Lek seems to never have a girlfriend. One day in a big flat, the owner comes back earlier than expected. Following a break up situation, he wishes to get suicide. This is due to wrong messages sent by Kong by using the owner's computer. Hearing Lek and his friend, a fighting happens in which Lek is injured. The flat owner, a gay man, dies through unfortunate shooting and Lek disguises this as a suicide. Due to his injury, Lek ends up at hospital. He meets Oi, a half crazy lady, who likes to smell old boxes to remind her of the past. One morning, they find a peacock on the roof. Oi tells an old Thai story about the peacock. The movie is going back and forth. Lek falls from a cliff. There is some analogy between past life and current life of Lek. The old Thai movie เสน่ห์บางกอก (1966) is even shown as a testimony to the past. Lek finally meets a lady with whom he feels strong connection. This beautifully shot movie questions how much of other people's lives we can really borrow. Similar to Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s movies, the story is not always easy to follow but the slow pace and the beautiful image make it worth seeing.
