Colic: Dek Hen Pee (Thailand, 2006)

When Phrae Ploy discovers that she is pregnant she gets married with Pongpop. Everything seems well but then suddenly the there is a fire next door and the neighbour gets burnt alive. Soon the baby gets born but doesn't seem to know there is anything besides crying. What is wrong with him?? The truth is more horrifying than you could ever imagine!

Colic: Dek Hen Pee starts rather slow but turns out to be a decent Thai horror. It's one of those movies that gets it from the mood, the atmosphere. Mystery is all around and the viewer has to put the parts of the puzzle together. Bad Karma, lost souls, a desparate mothe...for those how love this, Colic is a must see.

Also Pimpan Chalaikupp puts down a strong performance as Phrae Ploy. Thai horror isn't always good but slowly they get the feeling of it more and more.

Love and film

The special enchantment a movie can have; is that everlasting or just a period of interest in your lifespan? Though there are periods when you watch more and some periods you turn to different kinds of entertainment, I guess the love for film becomes part of your soul and will intertwine with it. When you once became addicted you keep longing to see them, to see the perfect scene, the most beautifull cinematography or the greatest acting there is. Evertytime you keep longing for it, and you will be disappointed often but the need to see stays. The need of love, the need of film.

I hope everyone will find him- or herself during this soulsearching journey. Why do we do it? Why can't we resist those almost primtive feelings? The answer is rather simple: Just for this one smile, this salty tear that runs down your face and this one combination of all emotions in all. Will you find it?

Shakespeare could have said it: To watch film or not to watch film
