Samui Song is a 2017 Thai-German drama film directed by Pen-Ek Ratanaruang, starring David Asavanond, Laila Boonyasak, and Karen Gemma Dodgson. The movie tells the story of Viyada, a famous but depressed Thai actress who is married to a wealthy German businessman, Frank. Viyada has everything that she could want, but she feels that something is missing in her life, and she is looking for something new and exciting. Meanwhile, Frank is obsessed with creating the perfect resort on the beautiful island of Samui, where they live.

At the beginning of the movie, Viyada meets a handsome young man named Noi, who helps her to realize that what she is missing in life is simple happiness. Viyada, who has been dealing with depression for a long time, is intrigued by the idea of finding happiness in simplicity. She is fascinated by Noi's carefree lifestyle, and they start spending more and more time together.

As Viyada begins to explore her newfound sense of freedom and happiness, she is forced to confront her past mistakes and her unhappy marriage with Frank. She realizes that she is not in love with him anymore, and she decides to leave him and start a new life with Noi.

However, Viyada's plans are derailed when she discovers that Noi is not who he says he is. He is not a simple island boy, but a dangerous criminal who has been involved in the drug trade on Samui. Viyada soon finds herself caught up in a world of crime and violence, and she is forced to make difficult choices to protect herself and her newfound love.

The movie is an intriguing mix of romance, thriller, and drama, with beautiful cinematography and a well-developed plot.

The movie also touches on the issue of cultural clashes between East and West, as well as the dangers of blindly following one's desires.

The performances of the lead actors are impeccable, with Laila Boonyasak giving a stunning portrayal of Viyada's emotional journey.
