First Love aka--- A Little Thing Called Love

Wednesday, March 30, 2011


Thai people are also romantic, this is proved by this movie. The ugly! But she had secretly in love with older guy in grade 10 name CHON , a most popular student in high-school.

 The ordinary 14 years old girl name Nam. She's unattractive or simple call... He's hot, perfect and generous. That's make girls in school going crazy about him, including Nam too. But she doesn't give up easily. She tried do everything to made her pretty good and outstanding in school. Because she hopes, he turned around at her just once more time.

It's your typical high school feel-good love story.  It's about a freshman named Nam who falls for a sophomore named Shone.  As if it's not enough that she chose to like someone older than her (that's such a big thing in high school for some reason), Shone happens to be the typical jock/campus hearth-rob that every girl wants.  She ends up doing a lot of crazy things to try to get him to notice her.

The main character, Nam, is played by Baifern Pimchanok.  She's so pretty (she looks a bit like Kim Chiu in some angles), but they intentionally made her look ugly in the beginning of the movie.  They gave her a dark, uneven complexion, a terrible haircut, glasses and braces.

Shone's character is played by Mario Maurer.   Just from the way he looks in this picture you probably know why he was chosen to play the campus hearth-rob.  I love how the producers didn't make him into one of those broody, mysterious guys that girls usually chase after.  He's cheerful, kind and approachable.  Mario's a bit too young for me to fan-girl over, but you can't deny that he's cute. Anyway, the two of them look really cute together.

The other characters in the movie played their parts really well too.  I loved Nam's homeroom teacher.  All she had to do was appear on screen and I would start laughing like crazy, she's hilarious!  And Nam's friends are awesome.  They're extremely supportive and remind me of my own beloved group of friends.

The plot is very simple, common and predictable.  It's probably every girl's dream to change from an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan and discover that the guy you've been crushing on feels the same way about you, even before your transformation.  Now don't get me wrong, I loved the movie.  The plot might be a bit overused, but the movies still definitely worth watching.  The producers and director did a great job on making it enjoyable.   There was great balance between the comedic and emotional scenes.

I laughed like crazy watching it, and even cried during a few parts.  Girls  would probably appreciate the movie more, but I know a couple of guys who have seen it and ended up liking it.  I watched it with my boyfriend and he seemed to like it as much – if not more – than I did.  I had to pause the movie a few times because he was laughing too hard at some scenes.  (And he kept asking me if I did all the crazy stuff Nam did back in high school XD)

I can relate to the story very well.  Just like most girls, I've been through a fair share of crushes and have done a few stupid things to try to get a guy's attention.   I know that rush of excitement you get when you see the person you like, even from afar.  I know what it's like to zone out during random times of the day because your mind is too occupied by that one person.   And like most girls, I know that feeling of frustration you get when you know you're doing everything you can think of, and yet he still fails to acknowledge your existence.   The trailer tells us that this movie is "based on the true story of everyone" and I couldn't agree more.


my comments

Crazy Over Crazy Little Thing Called Love is about an ugly-duckling-turned-into-a-swan high school girl,Nam, who had a crush with his senior, Shone, the campus` football prince, since first year high school. Her love for him made her changed everything about herself in order for him to notice her. She succeeded when she was chosen as the drum major during the sports festival. However, things did not turn out so well when Shone`s best friend, Top, who was a transferee, confess his love to her. In order to get close with Shone, she let him be his boyfriend. But later, she broke up with Top and confessed to Shone her feelings on his graduation day. Shone, who sworn to Top not to court Nam. rejected her by telling her that Pin, his close friend, was already her girlfriend about two weeks ago. The later part was my favorite when the movie revealed Shone`s viewpoints. After all those years, he was also in love
with Nam but was not able to show his feelings because he was shy and afraid of what others would say. He left his notebook, which contains Nam`s pictures, without telling her it was his. After nine years, Shone appeared in Nam`s interview in a tv show. Though not directly stated in the end, but Shone told her what she longed to hear.

The film was directed by Putthiphong Promsakha na Sakon Nakhon and Wasin Pokpong, and starred by Mario Maurer as Shone and Pimchanok Luevisedpibool as Nam. The plot was very simple yet it captured everyone`s heart in our campus. Everybody was so in love not only with the Shone character but also with Mario Maurer himself, and was so amazed with how Nam used her love for the better. It was really a funny and cute movie to watch for. Anybody who have been in love or just had a crush can relate to this, and even those who never had but still want to be one.
