Bangkok, basked in theatrical blood and phantasmagoric red colour, is a vision of hell in Nicolas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives, a violent thriller that premiered at the 66th Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday. 

Only God Forgives

One of the Competition titles, it stars Ryan Gosling as a man too scared to take revenge. The actor, who also starred in Winding Refn's 2011 Cannes hit Drive, was not in attendance at the premiere, but sent his apologies from Detroit where he is shooting his directorial debut How To Catch A Monster. Kristin Scott Thomas plays his monstrous mother, and Vithaya Pansringam as a mysterious cop who goes after everyone.
