Description


DOWN THE RIVER (Tam Sai Nam) (2004)

Thai Name: ตามสายน้ำ


Synopsis:
Elegantly composed, dreamlike and ethereal, Down the River is a stunning little treat from Thailand. Infused with Buddhist theology, the film tells the story of two best friends Krit and Vin. “Down the River”(Tam Sai Nam) depicts Buddhist Philosophy through the old Thai poem style, called “Niraad”, as it softly conveys the main character's feeling by mixing these with beautiful cinematography. Krit wants their relationship to be more, but Vin wants a wife and children. Vin's brain can't embrace his homosexual side as Krit has. Krit goes to gay bars, Win hangs out with the straight people, but all these two men have on their minds is each other. Krit and Vin love to hike in the woods, and Krit keeps a book where he presses flowers as memories of their walks. With scenes juxtaposed in a non-linear fashion the story, as it is, is of a hike Vin and Krit take with two women. Krit wants this to be an "intimate moment" with Vin, but Vin is still scared. When they do kiss and make love it's as sweet as any lovemaking scene we've seen. With scenes of Buddhist prayer shot in an ancient Thai Temple, there's a feeling that God is watching over these two young men in love. Shot in the forests, fields and Temples of the ancient country of Thailand, Down the River is a gay cinematic treat.

Being obsessed by his long lost love, the young male gay searches for the truth of his love life by taking his boyfriend to 7th tier beautiful cascade. “Down the River”(Tam Sai Nam) depict Buddhist Philosophy through the old Thai poem style, called “Niraad”, as it softly conveys the main character's feeling by mixing these with beautiful cinematography.

Production note
Although “Down the River” is not a political film, as it focus on relationships of a gay couple,
but I want to present an idea about “the old Thai way of life” that very concern Buddhist
teaching of “Let It Go”. As in this time the old value like this is not make sense for most of the
Thai people anymore.
I make this film to respect the Buddhist religion for it is the one that never say “to be gay is sin”
