Movie Info

Oxide Pang's fast-paced, MTV-inspired One Take Only stars Pawalit Mongkolpisit as Mak, a Bangkok street urchin who spends his days hanging out, getting high, and occasionally running drugs or guns for the local gangsters. He meets and quickly falls in love with a teenage prostitute who lives in his housing project, and they embark on a dingy love affair. Dreaming of a better life, they get deeper and deeper over their heads in the drug trade, which leads, inevitably, to tragedy. ~ Tom Vick, Rovi

Not even Pang's flashy style can make up for the lack of interest here.

Audience Reviews for Som and Bank: Bangkok for Sale (One Take Only)

Basic and simple storyline and plot showing a slice of Thai underclass. I thought Pom was played perfectly and the movie is filled with many small scenes where the sum is greater than its parts in this Thai drama. The chemistry is definitely there between the 2 characters, and although the movie reaches a predictable outcome, I appreciated the poignant scenes with the little streetgirl. Don't expect much as this is a small movie but to me was enjoyable to watch for Pom's performance.

Drug runner Bank and teen prostitute Som, essentially orphans, develop a romance in the Bangkok underworld. Fun as a seedy Bangkok travelogue, but everytime the underprivliged-teen-lovers-against-the-world drama starts to take off, director Oxide Pang CHun throws in another music video style dream sequence with thumping techno music to kill the momentum.

Average Thailand reckless and crime drama between the relationship of a young drug dealer and hooker live in the same building.
