The actress Linnea Larsdotter flew to Thailand for her screen test. The director Bank Tangjaitrong filmed her for 5 days, acting in versions of scenes from the script, before he choose to cast her as Joanna 1 month later. The recordings was later edited into a visual teaser for the film. See more »
The opening of the film originally included the characters arrival in Thailand. 6 scenes in total was cut. The director wanted to enhance the story and not reveal how many days the characters had been in Thailand. The opening shot of the film was one of the most expensive shots of the production and included a special car mount and police escort through Bangkok, Thailand. Parts of the very first scene can be seen exclusively on the web site. See more »

And what drugs were they taking when this got such great reviews?
I have to ask myself what drugs were people taking when this movie was given such great reviews? I mean, if this were an 8th grade movie project then maybe, just maybe this would be a 6 at best. Frankly, I would avoid this movie at all costs. It could be 45 minutes shorter and still the viewer would be left bored. Slow moving, a pretty shallow plot, a travel movie to support tourism in Thailand, two wooden actors who look like they are two anorexics in search of acting classes and there you have the basics of this movie that took about 102 minutes out of my life that I will never get back. I would highly recommend this movie as one to ignore and go watch something else with a plot, some meaningful dialogue, and two main characters who actually can portray some moods other than angry or depressed.
