Five Star Production Co., Ltd. (Thai: ไฟว์สตาร์ โปรดักชั่น) is the one of the first major Thai film production companies, founded in 1973 by Kiat Lamphungphorn and is today headed by his younger brother, Charoen Lamphungporn, and Kiat's children. Its first film was The War Lord and has since grew popular and major with its infamous Tears of the Black Tiger, which apparently tells a story about a monk's early adult life as a generous thief.
