For a long time you may wonder what the fuss is all about, but when the end credits start to roll you suddenly realize how wonderful Ratanaruang's film really is.
Compared to RRNNM just about everything is more polished. The visuals look tastier, the soundtrack is even more profoundly present and the acting is just about perfect.
The good stuff
Nymph is a good film by all means, it's just not all that commercial.
In the end, Ruang Talok 69 is a very fun ride, nicely shot and awesomely scored, presented with a great sense of humor and key scenes that are wonderfully executed.
Not quite a return to form for Pen-Ek Ratanaruang, but a good film nonetheless. Combining thriller elements with a more arthouse aesthetic, Samui Song is a film that keeps you on your toes. Well made, well acted and not at all predictable, but ultimately lacking some stand-out moments.
