The tale stretches from the Golden Era of King Rama V through to the ’30s when classical music was banned by the country's "modern" government. In Thai with English subtitles.

Heading South (2006)

Directed by Laurent Cantet

Cast: Karen Young, Menothy Cesar, Lys Ambroise, Jackenson Pierre Olmo Diaz, Wilfried Paul, Charlotte Rampling, Anotte Saint Ford, Louise Portal

Karen Young ("The Sopranos") stars in this naughty Euro version of How Stella Got her Groove Back. Young is a tourist who ends up in 1970s Haiti looking for some fun in the sun. She find it amid the handsome native boys who are more than happy to indulge middle-aged foreigners' carnal desires for a few bucks. Trouble sets in, however, when two of our tourists (Young and still-got-it 60-year-old Charlotte Rampling) set their sights on one man. Issues of love, sex, loneliness, commerce and post-colonial power abound in this lovely if dry think-piece from French director Laurent Cantet.
