Brian Chandler (Kip Pardue) is an employee of a coffee company. His boss, Calvert Jenkins (James Brolin) sends him to Thailand to look for a great new brand of coffee, but for more than just a supplier, but to investigate the possibility of investing in the company and building a plant there. Brian is engaged, but finds himself attracted to the daughter of the family from the coffee plantation who is an executive in her own right, Ticha (Napakpapha Nakprasitte). But when Brian finds out his boss is not serious, and just playing with him, he has to re-evaluate his whole life.

This is a cute romantic film, about love and business. One of the greatest features of this film, is that it’s like a foreign film, and an American film all in one. All of the actors in Thai are locals, and much of the film is on location in Thailand. Much of the dialog is in the Thai language with English subtitles. So it give so much insight into life and love, and business in Thailand. And the scenery is beautiful. The actors are fresh and convincing, and it’s a really good little film. It’s interesting all the way through, and the relationships between everyone keeps the story moving forward, but the best part is the experience of being in such a strange land and what we learn from the culture there. This is one of those quirky films, way out of the mainstream, that was a pleasure to watch. Available as an instant download on NetFlix, it’s easy to access, and well worth the time enjoying this Bitter/Sweet story. Just watch for the title. The year is 2009 and there is a slash (/) between Bitter and Sweet. There are a lot of other titles that are very similar, so it’s hard to find the right one.
