Tomboyish student Tao tries to support her studies (she’s writing a thesis on romance fiction) by writing articles for the racy magazine Sayew “Tickle” published by her uncle Hia Kung Fu. But the market is changing fast (glossy “adult” photo magazines are arriving) and she faces being fired if she can’t find a way to spice up her pieces… The risk of starving forces her first to construct fantasy scenarios featuring her neighbors, and then (on the advice of the mag’s ancient agony uncle) to start trying for first-hand experiences to draw on. Sex farce is not the easiest genre to get right, but Kongdej and Kiat strike a surprisingly successful balance between caricature and satire in their double-edged tribute to the porn of yesteryear. – Tony Rayns

The films features a surprisingly charming performance from actress/model Pimpaporn Leenutapong, who is heiress to Yontrakit, Thailand’s largest automobile importer and distributor making her, probably, the sexiest multi-million dollar empire heiress in Thailand.
