In The Room 

For fans of: ‘Mee Pok Man’ and ‘Be With Me’

We call it “Lust in Translation’. Things get steamy in Eric Khoo’s latest film ‘In The Room’. The movie draws together several narratives spanning several decades, all of them happening in the same room of the same Singaporean hotel — and all of them involving sex. Khoo uses the hotel room – one of the most transient living spaces – as a device to capture the ephemerality of sexual connection and relationships in a space where there are no strings attached. The movie features a pan-Asian cast including Singapore actors Ian Tan, Nadia AR, Koh Boon Pin; Thai actors Netnaphad Pulsavad, Wasurat Unaprom and Japanese adult film actress Shou Nishino.
