Movie Summary

Jan Dara is a twisted Thai erotic film made by famous Thai film director Nonzee Nimibutr. The film was released in 2001 at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film is actually an adaptation of a famous novel by Utsana Phleungtham called 'The Story of Jan Dara.' This film is essentially a story about Jan Dara, a boy who grows up in a dysfunctional family where sex, often perverse, is abundant but where love and nurture do not exist. Jan Dara (Suwinit Panjamawat; Eakarat Sarsukh) was cursed from the beginning: his mother, a victim of rape, died while giving birth to him. For this, Jan Dara's father, Khun Luang (Santisuk Promsiri) never forgives him, and as a man with seemingly no morals, makes his life a living hell. Khun never shows Jan Dara any love, abusing him as a child while unscrupulously having sexual relationships with many women. Jan's aunt, Aunt Waad (Wipawee Charoenpura) comes to Khun Luang's house to take care of Jan. Aunt Waad is seduced by Khun, and this makes Jan jealous as he has feelings towards her. Waad and Khun have a child as a result, she is named Kaew (Patharawarin Timkul; Chitlda Charoenlarp). Jan's situation becomes even more twisted and sickening when Khun raises Kaew to despise him for being cursed and a bastard child. Later, another one of Khun's lovers, a nymphomaniac by the name of Boonlueang (Christy Chung), visits the estate and seduces Jan Dara, teaching him her ways in love making. Jan eventually leaves Khun's house, but returns to marry Kaew in an arranged marriage. Once he is there, he discover more upsetting details about his current and past life. And just as Jan discovers these secrets, he begins to treat the surrounding women in his life just as his father did, even performing sexual acts in front of a framed picture of his mother.moreless
