Australia, the movie

Image

Have u watched the movie Australia? It is a 2008 epic historical romance film directed by Baz Luhrman, starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. It is the 2nd highest grossing Australian film of all time after Crocodile Dundee. The film is a character story, set between 1939 and 1942 against a dramatised backdrop of events across northern Australia at the time, such as the bombing of Darwin during World War II & its production took place in Sydney, Darwin Kununurra & Bowen. The movie was released in both Australia and the United States on 26th November 2008.

The shrine of Nangnak, Thailand

The tale of  “Mae Naak Phra Khanong” is so popular in Thailand and is also widely known in some Asian countries. It is believed that little children must always obey whatever they are asked to do or else Nangnak will come and eat their brains with chilli sauce which is really creepy! A shrine dedicated to her was made and people came to pay respect at the shrine of Nangnak.

Did you know that movies and television dramas about “Mae Naak Phra Khanong” were actually made countless time? A movie called “Nang Nak” was then made popular that managed to capture foreign audiences. The movie tells a story about a married couple  who used to live in the Phra Khanong area of Bangkok over one hundred years ago. The young lovers were very loving and spent most of their time together until one day, Nai Maak had to go out to join the army.

While he was fighting for his lives in his battle, Nang Nak gave birth to their baby. Sadly, both baby and mother died at child birth. Nai Maak had no idea about his wife’s death and he came back to meet his beloved wife. He was happy to see her but, what he didn’t know was the fact that his wife was already dead, so basically he was looking and living with a ghost. The villagers tried to tell him about the truth, but Nai Maak was too stubborn to even listen. He denied everything said by the villagers, including his own best friend.

However, he then found out that denials will only lead to sadness which is the part you must not miss! If you have not watched the movie, do watch it because the movie is really good.

Nobody knows whether the story of Nang Nak is actually true as there is no records about it. However, this tale has become one of the local beliefs; they believe in the power of her spirit.
