Thanks for the link, Wise Kwai.

Talking about Thai films shot abroad, I think about JONG RAK (1988, Prince Tipyachat Chatchai, B+), starring Marsha Wattanapanich, Bin Bunluerit, and Badin Duke. I think it was shot in Switzerland, and tries to exploit its beautiful scenery as much as it can. There is a memorable scene in which Marsha runs in a green beautiful valley in Switzerland. I remember this scene very well, because when my friends and I had to do some military training at that time (1988) and had to run in a field in a military base, we tried to imitate the running of Marsha and shouted something like “Jong Ruk” or “I am Marsha” while running.

There is a Thai film shot in Australia called LADY FARANG DONG (THE LADY OF PICKLED GUAVA) (1984, Pornpot Ganitasane), starring Jarunee Suksawasdi. I haven’t seen this film yet, but it is available in Youtube without English subtitles.
