prachya pinkaew's chocolate


This trailer hit the web a while back, but I realized I never got around to posting it... and man, it's worth posting. The movie is Chocolate, the latest from Prachya Pinkaew, director of Ong Bak, and it looks like a totally bitchin' action flick. It's about an autistic girl who learns how to fight by absorbing her martial arts skills from what she sees on TV and from the Muay thai boxing school conveniently located next door. The premise is pretty ridiculous, and the plot is probably paper-thin, but you won't catch me complaining. The action looks crazy. Don't know when it'll make it over here to the States, but I can't wait. View the trailer here.
