A Real Masterpiece in 2021

Unfortunately, but to be honest, I feel like Thai TV series tends to have the same affair-themed script. But Nadao Bangkok always continues trying to create new series, such as Hormones The Series and In Family We Trust (besides 9x9). It must be really difficult for sure, but they made it again. Storyline, cinematography, and acting were superb, they all really did a great job.

I didn’t expected vertical shot worked like that. Especially Ep.1-4 were really awesome. After watching Ep.4, I felt like rewatching 4 episodes all at once. (I'm not the only one who thought like that, am I?)

Captain and Praew are my favorite actors. Captain has a wide range of acting and I once again realized he really has. Praew also played her role greatly just as I had expected. I think this role was suited to her perfectly. As for Violette, I saw her acting for the first time though, her acting was really good. Now I’m in love with her voice:) But I think the best actor in this series must be Oab. His acting was top notch and gave me chills.

At first I thought it’s thrilling and unrealistic, but then realized it has many themes such as strong friendship, jealousy, desire, and impulse, which made me feel like it might be real, not a fake. If you are fan of Nadao Bangkok, you should watch this. Even if you are not a fan or haven’t watched their series yet, just give it a try! Anyway this is a short series, and I’m sure it won’t waste your time:)

Unique and interesting

Warnings: Sexual harassment/assault, Sex Crimes, violence and blood. - I personally don't count warnings as spoilers.


Story: Without giving anything away, the story feels well rounded which is impressive for a drama that is only eight 20+ minute episodes. I like the development of the story through the flash backs and present time. Plus it's not really what I was expecting at first glance.

Acting: To be honest, I watched this for Violette Wautier because I like her music. The cast did pretty well, given how the show was shot (vertical, each actor had their own camera, and close range). The vertical orientation took a not-so suspenseful show and made it a little creepier (besides the setting and story) because it messes with the viewers peripheral vision. Th girls stood out more than the guys for me, but Billy was interesting in the flashbacks, probably because it gave a lot more information on his character.

Music: Like I said, I watched this because I like Violette Wautier's music, and she sings and OST for it, so I was perfectly happy. It's called Matter. 10/10

Rewatch: It's short and good, so I would rewatch it again.

What Black Mirror wishes it could do lol

Thai cinema keeps evolving and I'm here for it. I wish people would know more than lakorns when it comes to Thai shows. This is innovation and artistry at its finest.

First off, Ep1-4 are ONE-TAKE and they're around 20 mins each so that blows my mind already considering the timing needs to be perfect for syncing the episodes. I watched the behind the scenes of rehearsals and honestly, I have so much respect for the cast and crew. Like they built the set from scratch and everything. I can't wait for this director to get more projects!!!

Plot is quite simple. I won't go into it but I loved it. Thematic wise, the ending is sad but satisfying. There's not much context between the relationship of the characters (and it's not necessary) but it's just enough to drive the themes.

Honestly, the whole aesthetic felt very futuristic/sci-fi-like. You have the incredible strong contrast, neon lighting work and the beautiful Biblical-themed set, which was very unique btw. I watched this in 1440p and it was a visual galore (4k is also available but I took mercy on my poor laptop). If this is the trend for 2021, I'm on board.

Everyone watch this NOW. It's free with subs on the Nadao Bangkok youtube channel.

Another masterpiece of Nadao BKK

NO SPOILER!! (Don't worry, continue reading)

Another underrated series of Nadao. As always the cinematography and production is on point, the storyline is amazing. You think it's another cliche mystery-thriller story but yoww the plot twist. They have also released the OST (Matter by Violette) and it is a MASTERPIECE. It's so sad this series is not getting the attention or hype. I mean come on, Nadao already have uploaded the eps with eng sub in YT tho (like very unusual of them) . Go and watch it please!!

BTW IT IS STILL ONGOING!

This is very promising.

So far, I'm loving this, oh my god.

The first 4 episodes are happening simultaneously. And each part shows one character's perspective. The fact that they only show each character's reaction and POV per episode is adding the mystery. Plus, the vertical perspective makes the audience can't see everything. That really stresses me out, haha.

I have no comment for the acting. I mean, it's Nadao's artists. Oab, Captain, and Praew are some of the talented entertainer there is. I didn't know Violette before, but damn girl, you're amazing too.

All in all, this 20 mins-one-take-like-series is worth your time. In my opinion, hehe.
