Her husband, Nop, showers her with love but May has started an affair with another married man. One day, May accompanies Nop to the forest to take photographs of the wildlife.

Pen-ek Ratanaruang  | director
Pen-ek was born in Bangkok in 1962. He spent eight formative years in his late teens and early twenties in New York City, where he studied at the Pratt Institute, majoring in Art History. He went on to work as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer. Back in Thailand, he was appointed Head of Art at the Leo Burnett agency and spent five years as an art director before directing TV commercials. He made his debut as a feature film director in 1997 with a movie that broke the mold of Thai cinema, and has since produced a stream of innovative films. He is one of the handful of directors who have helped to reinvent the Thai film industry since its slump in the 1990s, and has pioneered both the trend of looking back at retro Thai pop culture for inspiration and the expansion of Thai cinema into the realms of international casting and co-production. His films have been screened in festivals around the world, and he has picked up numerous festival prizes. NYMPH, his latest work, had its world premiere in Cannes 2009.
