She slips effortlessly into the role of a plain Jane.
Or if you will, she can play the beguiling tempress.
Poster boy BIE (SUKRIT WISETKAEW) is not just a cute singer.
He can really act as well.
THIS IS THE KICK-ASS MOVIE TRAILER
His STORY starts on this derelict ISLAND that’s devoid of total POWER and INTERNET communication.
This love-struck teacher reads “I MISS YOU SO MUCH” through a diary that unintentionally connects.
STUDYING is SO MUCH FUN when THE TEACHER demonstrates to the small class.
When DARKNESS falls, the NIGHT is seemingly long.
That’s where LONELINESS creeps in.
(Lady) “Is it POSSIBLE to LOVE without MEETING the other person?”
(Man) “I LOVE, I CHERISH and I will WAIT …”
SHE IS DEDICATED TO HER JOB
“THE TEACHER’S DIARY” (2014)
Thai Movie Review
Hey Baby, do you know what’s like to be lonely?
The year is 2012.
Song (SUKRIT WISETKAEW) is a cute hunk, an ex- wrestler who’s maimed by the physical and emotional demands of his wrestling job and opts for a change. He accepts a one-year contract to teach in a “floating houseboat” moored alongside an enormous lake, amid the lush forestry of Chiangmai.
To his dismay, he has an odd intake of four naughty students for a start.
These brats give him a hard time, despite his patience and endurance to educate them.
One day Song stumbles upon an illustrated diary belonging to Ann (PLOY CHERMAN), an attractive teacher who has taught the same class the term before him.
Reading page-by-page into the diary, he is fascinated by Ann’s regular goings-on. Most importantly, she is lonely too.
Nightfall after school can be boring and draggy. And leafing through Ann’s diary and penning his thoughts onto the book is the only pleasure that fertilizes Song’s mind and makes him forget about his extreme loneliness.
Of course, Ann has her fair share of frustrations and miseries when she was teaching the term before.
These she recounts in her illustrated diary. As time rolls on, Song finds himself falling in love with Ann though they have never met.
It is therefore natural that Song seeks Ann, yet when he eventually finds her, fate has it that she already has a boyfriend.
Both Ann and Song both are enduring unhappy relationships.
Song’s girlfriend is cheating on him.
Ann’s boyfriend is just another regular controlling jerk.
We all know that it will be a matter of time when Ann and Song, having connected through the diary, sparks would be ignited, and they’d fall for each other.
Would this be the case?
In 2013, Ann returns to her old teaching job at the same rural houseboat.
She retrieves her diary only to find Song’s responses to her past entries.
Ann is clueless about the mysterious Song who has since resigned from this houseboat school.
Where is he is now?
For two lonely souls, this houseboat school is swarmed with lovey-dovey remembrances.
Admirably directed by NITHIWAT THARATORN,”THE TEACHER’S DIARY” is exuberantly funny with loads of poetic indulgences and tender moments.
This Reviewer loves it!
The floating school based shown in the film is for real.
It’s called “Bann Ko Jatson School (Floating Classroom Branch)” at Li District, Lamphun Province in Northern Thailand.
The actress PLOY CHERMAN handles her role well, but it is BIE (SUKRIT WISETKAEW) who steals the thunder from her.
BIE has Chinese looks and if his management does a good job, he will soon have a stronghold of followers in Singapore, Malaysia and Taiwan.
That, provided he brushes up his Mandarin skills.
RATING: 4.5 out of 5 (for telling us that love is a many-splendored thing).
