Handle Me With Care
Filmfest 2008

Kwan is a guy with two left arms who views his extra appendage as an encumbrance. Though it makes it easy for him to hang up the laundry on windy days, zip his luggage shut and earns him Employee of the Month at the post office, where he sorts letters, Kwan is glum. He is unlucky in love, having been dumped by his popular and pretty high-school sweetheart, and now by his horse-faced co-worker... Kwan is tired of people around the idyllic small northern city of Lampang always staring and talking about him. Kwan decides to head to Bangkok, where a hospital has offered to cut his arm off for free, in the name of medical research. He's not even a block from home when his old car breaks down ... The most striking thing about the film is the effect of Kwan's third arm. It's all done with camera angles and perspective. Another actor is credited with "hand talent", and what one hell of a job he's done. Wise Kwai's Thai Film Journal @ The Nation
