This paper aims at scrutinizing how the women's image in the Thai film 'Nang-Nak' has ben represented, afecting the Thai people intensely and achieving its great suces in spite of having the background of 19th century and being a remaker. To fulfil the purpose and analyze the argument, the ideas of Le(1989), Joan(1973) and Jo(196) are used as theoretical concepts for this study.
As a result, two images of Thai women sem to be revealed in the movie. The first image, drawn from 'Maen' and 'Mian', is conventional, somewhat ideal type for Thai women, so being a common aspect. What makes the movie a big deal, however, is another image which the heroine 'Nak' has shown, atracting the audience to be moved to tears. It may be aparently an idiosyncratic or extraordinary one from the traditonal point of view in Thailand, but in other sense is a new, fresh image for which the contemporary Thai women want to sek. That is why the movie became one of the most popular in Thailand.
