The letter is a Thai romantic drama movie that was released in 2004. The movie stars Attaporn Teemakorn and Anne Thongprasom.
The letter is the story of Dew, a young woman who works as a programmer in Bangkok. She has to go to Chiang Mai to her cousin’s funeral. There, she meets Ton, a guy who is living and working in Chiang Mai. They attract to each other promptly. Then, they start dating each other and finally marry. But the happy time is not long as they expect. Ton has a brain tumor.
Well, I am not going to tell you more about the story because you should watch it by yourself.
For me, this is the saddest Thai movie ever. It is a heart touching Thai movie. The romantic scenes are so cute, while the drama scenes are so great. I watched it first time in the cinema, and I cried. While watching the movie, I heard sobbing sound of someone (and of mine). I remember that the ticket collectors who stood in front of the cinema gave all watchers a pack of tissue paper and some of us complained that a pack was not enough!
Here is a movie trailer. Unfortunately, this movie is quite old and I cannot find the one with English subtitle. But I believe that there is a version with subtitle. If you can find it, I recommend you to watch it.
If you watch this movie and love it, you should try watching Timeline, a sad Thai movie that was released 10 years after or in 2014. Until now, I am still not sure whether Timeline is a sequel to ‘The letter’ because the characters have very similar background. Well, the names of the characters are different.
