Crazy Little Thing Called Love (aka First Love)
I finally was able to watch the movie that everyone was raving about. I still am confused as to what the real title is. The subtitles say it's "A Little Thing Called Love." From the trailer it was "First Love." But, I think I'd go with how everybody calls it -- "Crazy Little Thing Called Love."
It's a Thai movie about the high school love we all have experienced. It's the typical romantic stuff that makes everyone all giddy and the likes. The feeling of having your first love, your super crush, your friends who tease you, etc. etc. It's all high school. The good times that everyone can relate. Plus, Baifern and Mario really had this awesome chemistry in addition to their fresh faces that made the whole movie interesting.
I must admit it. I was smiling most of the time watching the movie. It was more like a reminiscing of the memories I had back then when I was still in high school. Those were some really good memories I would never really trade for anything. haha. It kind of brought back the feeling of being young again... back when love was not that serious even though you were crying about it and all that stuff. I just laugh about those memories now but it was great reminiscing them through this movie.
The story was straightforward. It's kind of predictable. It was not meant for serious viewers. It's just what you're looking for if you want to relax and just feel the happiness and relive the memories you had with relationships back when you were still young. It still is good though.
I probably would give it a 7.
