A slew of disparate characters - a British paint designer in search of an elusive color ("peace"), a woman who's just stolen her money from her boyfriend (who happens to be a doctor and a drug dealer) and so on - are thrown together on a dilapidated bus trekking across the Australian desert.

"Siam Sunset [1999] functions best as a comedy of cultural differences and prejudices," wrote Sight & Sound. "Its humour derives from its details: in particular, the script is astutely observant of character, individual as much as national." In 2000, the BBC added: "The blandness of Australian soaps is matched only by the exuberance and invention of its big screen comedies... even when the humour becomes wonderfully, attractively absurd (which it usually does), there is always a real foundation to give the film a serious, emotional layer. Siam Sunset is the latest of this ilk."
