Recommend this film

Wille has a problem. His godfather, Finnish butcher Seppo is in love with Pin, a Thai woman. How could there be true love between a Western man and a Thai woman? It’s just prostitution by another name. The middle-aged man wants sex and to subjugate the young woman, she wants financial security.
This issue has troubled Wille since his godfather’s previous Thai girlfriend. Turned out she loved Seppo’s money instead of him.
Wille reveals his doubts to his godfather. Seppo wants to show Wille the reality of their relationship and asks Wille to join him for a month in Thailand’s Buriram to meet Pin.
Wille follows their life persistantly and harasses them with his questions and tests of Amor. Is it true love?

“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
