Cherd Songsri – Plae kao AKA The Scar (1977)

Peasant Riem loves Kwan but the love is not reprocical. He loves singing Likay. Traditional peasant way of life, watching over buffalo, rice planting, getting fish from rice fields, ceremonies where young men invite girls they like to dance, Songkran ceremony with small pagoda made of sand are gracefully shown. They finally love each other with a promise in front of the local deities tree. But Riem family refuses this love story. Choi, local gangster, injures Kwan with his sword making a scar. This scar is the symbol of their love that nothing can break…

“A truly ethnic film, rich in wild passion. Although a melodrama made for the masses, the glorification of passion blending in with rich water scenary, such as in the love scene which ensues while bustling about rice paddy fields with water buffalo, is beautiful and something only a Southeast Asian film could deliver.”
Tadao Sato

This movie is part of the first 25 films as National Heritage announced by the Ministry of Culture.
