Director Prachya Pinkaew and fight film choreographer Panna Rittikrai, who brought us the classics Ong-bak (2003) and Tom Yum Goong (2005), are back with another die hard action flick! First timer Vismistananda (Zen) trained for years in preparation for this role in which she plays an autistic girl who goes on a mission to collect debts to save her ill mother, a course of action that puts her on a collision course with gangs of both the local Thai and Japanese varieties. Quentin Tarantino picked CHOCOLATE as one of his eight favorite films of 2009!
