Product Information

REMEMBER NOONG CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM UNDERWATER!
Perth (MARCH Chutavuth Pattarakampol) and Tan (TOR Thanapob Leeratanakachorn) are both best friends and longtime rivals. No matter how hard Perth tries, he can never out do Tan. Life gets even more complicated for these two swimmers when Perth starts to fall for Ice (KAO Supassara Thanachart), Tan’s girlfriend, who has also developed feelings for Perth as well. When Ice unexpectedly commits suicide at the swimming pool where the swim team practices, Tan can’t keep his depression in check and stops going to swim practice. Now Perth becomes the shoe in for the only university sports quota left. The opportunity to finally eclipse Tan pushes Perth to train every chance he gets, even if that means swimming alone at night in the same pool where Ice was found dead. One day, Tan reveals to Perth that Ice committed suicide because she was pregnant. Tan goes on a relentless pursuit to find and take revenge on the culprit. Find out whether love can overcome hatred?

The winner sinks his all. Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Perth (Chutavuth Pattarakampol) and Tan (Thanapob Leeratanakajorn) are both close friends and swim together in the local sports training pool. They are competitive swimmers, with Perth landing himself a gold medal at a competition and also a new admiring girlfriend Mint (Violette Wautier). But this was not long after the tragic death of Ice (Supassra Thanachat), a girl who had committed suicide by plunging into an empty pool leaving her boyfriend Tan in so much despair that he was unable to perform for the competitive swimming medal. Celebrating his victory Perth is pleased at his win, but also disturbed by the death of Ice. Perth also loved Ice, and had taught her how to swim at secret nightly sessions at the sports pool, and eventually won Ice over from his best friend Tan. Ice told Perth she would break up with Tan, but Perth wanted to keep their love secret. Now Ice was dead and on the day of his medal win Perth is reminded of the anniversary of her death. With Perth now dating Mint, their relationship begins to scar by Perth's haunting memory of his former secret love.

But one day at the pool observation room, Tan and Perth speak together about Ice's suicide, and Tan is determined to find out who had caused Ice's terrible death. Perth is curious about what his friend would do if Tan ever discovered the truth about Ice, and Tan tells Perth he would kill the person who had caused Ice's death. Perth remembering his secret liaisons with Ice at the swimming pool remembers that much had developed between them - that they loved each other. They had even slept with each other and Ice had become pregnant.

Scared of Tan's intent, Perth is determined to keep the truth from him (also causing curious and jealous concern from Mint), especially when Tan obtains Ice's smashed hand phone that could reveal a video of Perth and Ice's love together. Tan had once received his girlfriend's phone after going to her house after Ice's funeral. Perth had also attended Ice's funeral, sneaking also into the family home hiding under Ice's bed as her mother entered the room - and begins to hear strange ghostly noises (even a fit of rage on the bed above - was that the ghost of Ice?). Perth then begins to sense more the unsettled spirit of Ice - and heard her words one night whilst he was sleeping. 'Please keep our baby' echoing around Perth's bed room as he slept alone - flooding back the dark memories.

A watery crave unto lonely madness Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Paranoid, haunted, obsessive and beginning to shift into dark realties of guilt and shame, Tan maintains his training for another swimming competition. But at every moment Perth is haunted by Ice's un-restful shadow, their secret pregnancy issue obsessing Perth the most as he psychologically convinces himself of having a ghost pregnancy - why was his stomach beginning to bloat so much? Was it the raw egg intake to assist his swimming training that was making his stomach swell? But pregnant women can also have the urge to eat many raw eggs. Wild eyed with insanity Perth gets ever more paranoid, convincing himself that Ice's baby is being reborn inside of him. With Mint getting ever curious about Perth's odd behaviour and with angry Tan also treading nearer to discovering the dark truth about Ice and Perth's tragic love - Perth becomes one scared and frightened lonely man.

There's a watery hole and main character Perth drops into it...again and again. He's a swimmer 'winner' but at what cost? His soul? His obsession for Ice is obvious, as too is Tan's who would kill for reasons of sick revenge, churlish obsession for truth. The Swimmers is part ghost story (a creepy one at that) but mainly love obsession, with two amiable lads, who after the death of Ice, both sink into manic obsessive anger and tense paranoid fear, with Tan and Perth making quite desperate and disturbing nasty choices. The blue touch paper lit crux is teen sex and pregnancy, here a dividing curse that blights good friends relationships when something very unfortunate happens. It turns into a fear mind game, with Perth always afraid of his angry friend Tan discovering his fearful guilt. Those holes. But like Laddaland, is another good psychological horror movie from director Sophon Sakdaphisit with a worthy plot (apart from one violent loose end scene) and disturbing stuff. (The fetus scene death is one to etch itself into memory the most). It also portrays some chilling and haunting photography and stark reflective landscapes, and the incidental music quite interesting, too. The main actors also express their characters well (Thanapob Leeratanakajorn reminding me a little of a young Ji Tae Yu). As a watery horror - it's a good mere ghost tale. As a social comment about casual sex - nah - the young know how to grow up as always since the days of the cave. Natural Sex is sex - not like XXX.

If you do need to eat whilst watching this movie though, try to avoid the idea of an egg omelet.
