Many of us would have seen Thai advertisement - the funniness is no worse than HK or Japanese's humour.
Many of us would have seen Thai horror movie - many of us have perception of Thai movie = horror movie.
Try this movie - you will know that Thai movie industry is way beyond just horror movies.
In the past one year I have closer encounter with Thai people. So in a way, I would want to learn their language - the quickest way is to watch movie or listen to Thai music.
OK, back to the movie.
This movie tells how a group of young people, striving to succeed (hence 'suckseed') in the music competition.
I watched it with Jen and my dad.
All of us like it.
This comedy delivers what it should deliver.
I shared some same thoughts as my father:
i) The movie is all-rounded. It shows that Thai kids can act (the scene in the classroom - all the children acted naturally)
ii) The movie managed to introduced some Thai rock music groups - which, I believe, many of the non-Thai people won't know them before this movie.
iii) It is a movie with proper ending (many of the movies nowadays have 'strange ending', which you won't know what is it trying to say)
My personal view: I like how the movie shows the atmosphere when you listen to music - it really feels like someone is beside you, talking to you about how you feel.
The beginning part of the movie, which talked about their childhood - reminds me of Fan Chan, another well delivered movie.
As the walkman generation evolved into discman generation - then into iPod generation (yep, the evolution is 'subconsciously' shown in the movie): people grew up and have chosen different path to move forward.
I'll repeat what I had just mentioned earlier: By watching this movie, you will understand that why Thai people can produce funny advertisement, and their movie industries are definitely more than just horror movies.
I would definitely invite all of my friends to watch this movies.
P/S: This post is dedicated to all my Thai colleagues whom I have worked with. Thanks and it is great to know all of you! One day we will definitely suckseed na krub!
