THAI TEEN MOVIES

Teen Thai movies (หนังวัยรุ่น) are targeted for teenagers and university students. Teen films became a new popular genre in 1980s and 1990s in response to the new targeted audience of the shopping malls that have replaced old Thai cinema with one huge screen by major Cinema operator complexes having several screens. Also in early 1990s the invasion of American blockbusters saw most local producers attempt to attract the under-17 audience, where they felt they could still find a market. The result was a preponderance of teen comedy and teen action movies. Plots and themes often centered on the classroom. The young characters did not concern themselves with political activities that many university students in the period of 1970s were involved in. Those films are a sign that the student movement started to decline in power in late 1970s.

A new teacher (ครูใหม่) called Sirin (Jarunee Sooksawad) is recruited. She notices that two students always arrive late. One is a boy called Satit coming from a rich family (ลูกเศรษฐี). One is a girl called Kalaya coming from a slum family (สลัม). The movie highlights the importance to study for teens but also the importance for teachers to keep interest from their students (รักเรียน). This school has a strict director and strict teachers keeping the same program and activities without changes over years. Sirin tries to change this mindset. In Thai schools students show respect to their teachers in the mornign and evening (ไหว้ครู) and get hit with a stick (ลงโทษ) when they fail to obey to the school rules. Sirin faces opposition from the teacher head when she wishes to punish Satit for his bad behavior. Only the poor child Boonmee gets punished. Sirin wants to have same treatment for all children either rich or poor. A fight happens between Satit and Boonmee. Satit's elder brother, called Narit, comes to complain about the new teacher at the shool. He trusts Satit and doesn't know he is behaving badly. Kalaya has no time to study. Every early morning she has to deliver newspapers. Her father is always drunk and hit his wife. Kalaya is too ashamed to say why she is late everyday. Teachers decide to buy a bicycle for her so she doesn't have to run in the morning (same as movie Walli - วัลลี). Satit keeps stealing things. This time he steals teacher belongings and accuses Boomee. Hopefully Sirin is aware of the stratagem but Narit refuses to believe that his younger brother has problems as he is coming from a rich family. Money doesn't buy happiness... Kalaya didn't come to school since many days as her father sold the bicycle to buy alcohol. She now works in a construction site. Students decide to share the workload regarding newspapers distribution so that she can be on time in school. Following a brawl, Satit is sent to Police station. Teacher Sirin confirm (รับรอง) her students integrity so that they can be released. The school is going to take part in sport competition with other schools. They have big hope in cycling with Kalaya and Thai boxing with Boonmee. Poor children train hard while rich children just enjoy beach. Sirin sees Satit stealing the director's ring. She prevents the robbing but gets injured as Satit pushes her violently. The director doesn't believe Satit could be a robber. Losing trust in her director, Sirin resigns. Students refuse to study until Sirin is back. Finally Satit tells the truth to his brother. This one asks the director to recruit back Sirin. Sirin refuses to acknowledge the director's requests but accepts when students implore her. Competition starts. The school wins in boxing and cycling. Satit becomes a good boy. Despite strange cuts in the editing, this movie is full of good feelings, i.e. school importance, teacher dedication, studies, rich and poor society opposition...

Friends help each other and give hints to succeed. Somchai is trying with Fon (จีบผู้หญิง) but he is too timid (ปิ๊งๆผู้หญิง). Jealousy and misunderstanding happens between Nat and Parn. Somchai needs to fight Fon's boyfriend through a Thai boxing fight to win Fon. Fon's presence dynamizes Somchai to win the match. Nat and Parn finally also reconcile. It is a good mood movie with modern 1980s songs and a succession of funny gags even if there is a lack of real scenario. This movie got success in 1980s thanks also to the song ตัดใจไม่ลง. The movie made 10M baht at the box office and got a best director award in Thai cinema ceremonies (รางวัลสุพรรณหงส์ทองคำ). It is the second part of Thai movie “ซึมน้อยหน่อย... กะล่อนมากหน่อย” which includes only new actors so new faces! So it was a new kind of comedy style for 1980s teens including jokes (หน้าแตก), language shortcuts, songs style teen public was used to. Many other similar teens movies followed up this trend but they were not as successful.

The Thai movie saga "Boonchu" is made of eight movies. Boonchu represents the Thai peasant attributes (timidity, modesty...) in a cheerful manner. Boonchu always speaks with a provincial accent.

In 2008, a new movie came as the series was celebrating its 20th anniversary. Boonchoke, son of Boonchu and Mo, is following in his father's footsteps by coming from Isan to Bangkok to attend university. Boonchu 3 and 4 were never made. As a marketing gimmick, the production skips them to go directly from Boonchu 2 to Boonchu 5.

Same as his father he failed the first year exams as he helps this young lady chased by a gang. This opus 9 plays with nostalgia with participation of all former actors that played in Boonchu serie twenty years ago.

It is opus 10 regarding Boonchu saga. Unfortunately director Bandit Ritthakol just died in 2009 when doing the movie pre-production so Kiet Kijcharouen has directed this movie. Boonchoke is going to Chiang Mai to study to university. His parents, Boonchu and Mo, let him go alone so that he can acquire more independence. He meets a lovely girl called Khun Chahom. He is sharing a flat with a new friend called Mor. Mor teaches Boonchoke what is correct or not when talking to ladies. Mo is two months pregnant but doesn't say to Boonchu as she is afraid he will not let her visit their son in Chiang Mai. Meanwhile Boonchu and his friends head to Chiang Mai. On the way they meet the same restaurant owner present in all previous movies opus. Director Kiet Kijcharouen’s talent is to handle well the gags and they are not seen as a patchwork of assembled jokes often seen in some other modern Thai comedies. Boonchu visits Chiang Mai night market with his friends but his wallet is stolen. The owner has some “Ong Bak” skills so he can avoid being caught. Finally a young and mysterious lady helps to catch him and gives back his wallet to Boonchu. Boonchu and Mo cannot meet Boonchoke on the following day as he has gone hiking in the forest with his friend Mor. They face some wild animal smugglers. Luckily a young lady called Champa help them. They release the animals. She is Chahom's sister and is also the one who helped Boonchu. Captured by the smugglers, they succeed to escape and meet again Boonchoke’s parents. On the following day Champa learns that the smugglers plan to cut an one hundred years tree in the forest. She decide to oppose again. Boonchu and his son go also as Champa helped them before. During the arguments (Thai generations heritage protection versus immediate money) with the ruffians, Boonchu is shot in the chest. A sad song of life is played (คนดีของไทย) as Boonchu is seriously injured. The movie finally ends happily, i.e. the tree is saved, ruffians captured, Boonchu recovers and is very happy to learn that he is going to be a father a second time. As usual with Boonchu movies, there are many good feelings and messages regarding environment in this last opus.
