My Godfather, His Thai Bride and Me

2012 / Finland / 58min

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?
