Movie Info

A hit man takes a vacation and finds both danger and faulty workmanship follow him wherever he goes in this offbeat comedy from Thai filmmaker Pen-ek Ratanaruang. Kyoji (Asano Tadanobu) is a hired killer based in Macau who works for Japanese crime boss Wiwat (Toon Hiranyasup). Kyoji poses as a chef to maintain his cover, and he gets to put both skills to use when Wiwat asks him to kill his wife Seiko (Tomono Kuga) with a poisoned meal, not a difficult thing to arrange since Kyoji has been having an affair with her for several months. After dispatching Seiko, Wiwat thinks Kyoji could use a little R&R, and sends him on a cruise to Phuket. However, Kyoji discovers he's been given a cut-rate stateroom in which anything that can go wrong does on a regular basis. However, this turns out to be the least of his troubled when he discovers he's being trailed by two mysterious figures -- an attractive single mother who may or may not be flirting with him (Gang Hye Jung) and a large man in a Hawaiian shirt (Mitsuishi Ken) whose motives are difficult to ascertain. Invisible Waves received its North American premier at the 2006 Toronto Film Festival.more

Top Critic

like the delicate images from which it is composed, the narrative of Invisible Waves is a series of suggestions and ellipses that viewers must complete and colour for themselves.

Eye for Film

The story of betrayal, poisoning, karaoke and manky cruise ships is often convoluted despite the deliberate pace.

Audience Reviews for Invisible Waves

Darker than "Last Life In The Universe" and although wonderfully shot, the story seems drawn out. Tadanobu Asano once again provides a stellar performance, although this anti-hero seems just a bit too cowardly to appreciate.

Super Reviewer

This is a BOMB! Everybody's gonna expect something from the director and all-star casts from all over Asia, but maybe sometimes things just go wrong somehow.
