I’ve watched several Thailand romantic movie, and its addictive! Finally, I had a chance to watch this movie, Crazy Little Thing Called Love. Not a new movie though, but still worth-watching. :)
Crazy Little Called Love (2010) is a Thailand romantic comedy starring Fern Pimchanok Leuvisedpaibul (as Nam) and Mario Maurer (as Shone). Nam is a high school girl who is secretly in love with her senior, Shone. Shone is a charming 10th-grade-student who interested in photography and football. He often teased by his schoolmate because his father failed to take penalty shoot on the football cup. Eventhough, many girls are still crazy for him, including Nam.
Aware as not-a-dazzling-girl in the school, Nam, with the help of her friends, try everything to improve herself to get Shone’s attention. She start to treat her dark skin and start to study diligently.
On the next next next grade, Nam has become a beautiful girl. Then come another charming boy at school, Top, Shone’s best friend. Top has expressed his love, but Nam refused him because of her love to Shone. But, Shone and Top already have agreement that they won’t love same girl. This promise makes Nam’s love to Shone seems not possible.
In the end of school year, Nam will go to continue study in America and Shone will take a football career. Before they separated for long time, Nam expressed her feeling to Shone with all of her courage. But sadly Shone has been dating someone. After that meeting, it turns out that Shone also has a feeling for Nam.
Nine years later, they meet again. And…..happy ending :)
This movie has a simple storyline. It describe first love and its cheesy things. That CHEESY!!!
Although the story is simple, unfortunately the movie is told with a bit long-winded and makes the duration is quite long, almost two hours. But don’t worry because the transformation of Nam may not be boring and can be a refresher during this film. Pretty good movie, nothing special but still entertaining.
After watching this movie, it is funny to realize how every little thing can make us either happy or worried. Chasing is really the best part, right? :P
Besides that, love can make someone change, either to fit with his/her loved one or to get his/her attention. It’s good if the change go to the positive direction.
I think, on eastern culture, it is not usual if a woman express her feeling first to a man she loved. So, note to every man, say ‘love’ if you love her before it’s too late because second chances do not always exist. :P
First Love 2: The Sequel, 9 Years Gone. This sequel takes part after the 9 Years of Shone and Nam’s life. The director confirmed that there is a sequel, however, it is still only in draft-processing but will be released soon. If ever there will be, Mario Maurer will reprise his role as Shone and Fern Pimchanok Leuwisedpaiboon will reprise her role as Nam.
