Perry's perfect life - creating colors for a British paint company - has become one of constant misfortune.

Along the way he meets Grace, a woman who seems to belong to a different world. Together, in the midst of the Australian outback they decide to give life another chance.

I have to see films more than once...twice is about my limit, but this Australia comedy is absolutely histerical. If you have ever been on a tour bus...this will get your laugh lines more pronounced. It is wonderful what films you can make WITHOUT much in the way of special effects. The things that happen...
I have been dying to get my hands on a copy to show my US friends...now if they could only put THE MAN WHO SUED GOD on Region 1 DVD!!!
Enjoy...

A few surface situations affecting several persons combine to make this film a beautifully blended mix of drama, melodrama, comedy with a few touches of sexual undertone. Linus Roache burns up the screen with his casual "slinkiness" and smoldering masculinity. He keeps the "eye candy" level up high and heated.

I know I'll keep this film handy for reshowing. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this excursion into "fantasyland."

I recommend this highly. Very clever, funny - well done! (I won't go into plot details - others have, already.) (Some reviewers here should be SHOT for giving away the important plot details!)

The reviewers who have told the plot details should have their reviews REMOVED by Amazon. Reviewers who give away plot details should not be allowed to write comments/reviews on Amazon. They ruin the film for others, by telling too much.

This movie stars Linus Roache who plays an English colour Matcher who is vainly trying to recreate a paint colour"Sam Sunset "hence the title of this movie. Feling like he needs a vacation he goes on a bus tour of South Australia where heis joned by Danielle Cormack, a woman on the run with a secret This movies will be happily enjoyed by anybody who ever went on a low budget bus trip . This movie was shot near the opal mining town of Coober Pedy with it's eerie lunar like landscape This movie is an absloute gem just like the opals to be found in Coober Pedy!!!

Having lived in Australia for a year, I got a chance to see this there a few years back. Absolutely Hilarious! The bus driver with his "It's the one rule we do have!" Too funny.
I won't spoil the plot, but you just have to see the love scene! By far the funniest I have ever seen. I couldn't stop laughing!
If you like the offbeat, you will love Siam Sunset. Good to see it finally available.

It's a nice movie, I knew that before buying, having seen it on TV. My rating would be four stars if it were about the movie. The DVD itself, however--that's a different story.

I bought it as a gift for a friend last year. Today I got to see the DVD unsealed, and it's not a professionally made DVD. It is not a disc pressed in a factory, it's just a CD-R ripped and burned on a computer! And even that would be tolerable, except that the image quality is really very poor, the worst DVD I've seen by far. It looks every bit like a pirated copy.

It's too late now to return the DVD, and, like I said, it was already presented as a gift. Some gift!

I see that the movie is now available in a new release, which came out after I bought this one. If you have to have the movie, buy the other one. You might have better luck.
