(out of 5)
Fascinating true story about a nationally famous Thai boxer (played by real-life kickboxing champ Asanee Suwan) who competed in order to save up money for a sex-change operation. 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.
