A martial arts film with a difference?

Coming from the same stable as kung fu blockbusters “Ong-Bak” and “Warrior King”, “Chocolate” adds a couple of interesting twists to the formula of that bone-crushing duo: its lead character, Zen, is a young girl. And she is autistic

The world already has a number of notable female kung fu stars, including Zhang Ziyi, Michelle Yeoh and Cynthia Rothrock, but none of their characters display anything like the fragility and vulnerability that Zen initially brings to the screen.

Directed by Prachya Pinkaew, and played by JeeJa Yanin, Zen lives with her mother, Zin (Ammara Siripong) and friend Mangmoom (Taphon Phopwandee). The three of them form a virtual family unit that is soon exposed to further strain when Zin is diagnosed with cancer, and becomes bed-ridden as her illness and medication take hold.
