    Basically its about this kid who wants to be a dancer, but is also secretly an admirer of muay thai. he gets bullied into fighting at a local event, and uses the only technique he knows- roundhouse kick, which he learnt from watching his brother- to win the match (after taking quite a beating)

    after this he goes and joins a muay thai camp but it isnt quite what he wants- drill camp like training isnt his cup of tea. however the girl who cooks their food shows him the advanced fighters training in the woods and he is immediately taken with the beauty and grace of muay thai. It progresses from here with him fighting, winning, making money, and finally "coming out" that he is actually a woman trapped in a mans body. Finally, when he is rich enough, he gets the operation to change him into a woman. (weirdly enough, she is now a model in Bangkok- Thais are very open minded )

    Movie is a bit slow to start off with, especially when you dont understand the language but when the action starts its awesome. The fights are some of the most realistic I have ever seen, while still adding in a bit of movie fu- flying elbows and some older muay boran techniques are mixed in with the brawling-, and all the people who act in it are trained muay thai fighters- you wont see any laughably uncomfortable actors trying to be kung fu masters ala the matrix here. The movie is very well acted, directed... honestly, this puts most big money hollywood films to shame.

    And yes, it is a true story. Parinya Charoenphol is something of a legend in Thailand, and was an extremely accomplished fighter.


    This Movie does come in a Region 0 sub-titled version you should be able to get it at Asiancultcinema.com

    I had to go to a Gay Movie Festival to get to see this movie around here...next time I'm wearing a sign which reads "No, I'm not gay, I'm here to see the fights.".

    Nice thing was, I was one of the few not to be disappointed by this movie.

    Good fighting, bad acting.

    By the way, was I the only one who found it weird that the guys coach is a bloody caucasian?

    Where the maps are spread,
    His eyes fixed upon nothing,

    I cant beleive you guys havent heard of this movie until now.

    Man, I even saw the guy/girl whos life is the base for the script in interviews when the movie came to the theaters.

    Ive heard that sex change operations are quite common in thailand. And that Thai transexuals are the hardest to find out they are.

    I know that some of you have heard the word "ladyboy" before...

    I guess the sex change thing has to do with thailand being the biggest brotel on earth. Sucha a shame what can happen to a such a country with an intersting history and culture, and the homeland of one of the baddest MA... oh well, such is life...

    Tagline for Beautiful Boxer is "A champ has to fight like a man to become a woman"

    It's been out in Asia for a few years now but I never picked it up because it looked too typically Thai creepy. I don't get what the hell is up with Asians and genderbending in sports, but god damn that's fucked up.
    Rad ki was made up by adolescents. I do not know who created trad ki but it was not made by adolescents. your an ass dude, Im not being a little bitch you are, your past the level of a bitch. Your beyond Bitch! If im easting my time with ki and psi, then your wasting time to prove frauds, and all **** like that! -theoutsider

    Kick boxing is ok, but don't expect do beat a man like Rickson Gracie with that. You need a real martial art. You need Xing Yi Quan. -Emptyflower

    The splits, how ever, have a few martial uses. Doing the splits for me, can put my fists in testical strike range.

    dont ignore the Art for the Martial or else your just kick boxing

    Yes i am serious, there are kicks that can block punches. we have them in Moo duk kwan.
    I want to learn how to use them in case my arm gets broken in a fight.
    what would you have me do? if my arm gets broke, not block punches? -sempi-stone

    Yeah, I think there was a video of a MT fight in which one of the fighters moved, hairdressed and acted like a total fag. And by this i mean that he was acting like that on pretty purpose. He won on points the othre guy and you should see the reaction, the one beated was really pissed, like "I cant belevie I lost to this fag" while the other was dancing booty-shake style all around the ring, and then he gave the loser a kiss.

    Man this post looks like an AOLer.

    I'm doing some work up in Hartford, CT. I picked up the local weekly paper, always a good source of restaurant reviews, and they reviewed this movie.

    Very bizzare, I guess it's playing at the local Gay/Lesbian movie fesitval.
