Though all movies shown in the Philippines for the last two weeks of 2010 are all Filipino-made (due to the Metro Manila Film Festival) and every citizen has flocked the movie houses, I have yet to watch one.
And since I seem to belong to the odd segment of humanity that always made me wonder what parallel in the universe am I in, the last film that I was able to watch last year was neither a Filipino nor a Hollywood movie. It’s Thai! The movie is entitled Sing Lek Lek Thee Riak Wa Ruk starring Mario Maurer and Pimchanok Luewisedpaibon.
It’s a feel good comedy film about a schoolgirl’s undying crush towards a campus heartthrob. The characters were so effective and the mesmerizing “kilig” (giddy fuzzy feeling) factor was so pure. They were loads of endearing charm and cuteness presented in multiple solid laughs. But what made it so wacky was because of the supporting role played by Sudarat “Tukky” Butprom. Tukky as the English Teacher was so hilarious. I wanted her to be always on the screen as the story progress for she was a BLAST!
The movie also deals about genuine friendship, youth’s struggle to look good and feel good, youthful fun and life’s simplicity. It’s pure entertainment full of unadulterated charm that is hard to resist. It will make you truly realize that sometimes the simple unfussy entertainment is the one that comes off best.
In a more serious note, it is about life’s struggle to be better anchored on undying love and (pronouncing like how Tukky pronounced it in the movie…) INSPIRATION.
If I only have enough bucks and have the right connections, I am all but willing to produce the Philippine release of this movie. I will not remake it to be played by Pinoy thespians but release it like it is. I’m sure it will be a big hit!
Imadyin, tong tanda kong ‘to. Kinikilig pa pala. Mwahahaha! *evil laugh*
