For Present Perfect, his 2017 feature-length film debut, Thai director Aam Anusorn Soisa-Ngim drew from his own experiences to tell the story of Toey and Oat (Adisorn Tonawanik and Kritsana Maroukasonti), a pair of young men who have a brief affair during a trip to the small town of Higashikawa in Japan.
Though there is clearly a spark between them, they’re both on different journeys. While Toey is still recovering from a recent breakup, Oat is engaged to a girlfriend back home – and the burgeoning romance that they soon share is far from guaranteed.
Ending on a cliffhanger, Present Perfect developed a dedicated fanbase in Thailand at the time of its release, which was evidenced by the crowdfunding success of its eventual sequel, Present Still Perfect, a few years later.
Dekkoo is proud to present the original film to American audiences. Now you can go back to the beginning and catch the start of this on-going romantic saga.
