Beautiful Boxer (2003)

EKACHAI UEKRONGTHAM

Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BBBB

Thailand, 2003.  GMM Pictures Co..  Screenplay by , Ekachai Uekrongtham.  Cinematography by .  Produced by .   Music by , . Production Design by .  

Fascinating true story about a nationally famous Thai boxer (played by real-life kickboxing champ ) who competed in order to save up money for gender confirmation surgery.

The films brims over with rich characterization, good humour and some really impressive stunt work; Ekachai Uekrongtham tells us a very average story about dreams and their realization under the most extraordinary circumstances, and does so with heart. The film’s generous two hour running time flies by quite easily.
