Where we belong (2019)

Sue was an upcountry girl living in Chantaburi. Upon high school graduation, she decided to travel to Finland. So, she had to resolve issues with her family, friends and lovers before leaving Thailand for good. Over the course of her attempts to do so, she discovered that it was not at all an easy task.

In my opinion, the best thing about this film was the way it portrayed modern lives in Thailand downtown upcountry. It’s very realistic and up-to-date. In fact, you hardly find Thai movies that can do just that. Nowadays many of us still think people in the upcountry are making a living growing rice, so on and so forth.

The film stars three members of the idol band, BNK48. They were all acting very well. Anyway, for all the BNK48 fans, do not expect to see them sing and dance cheerfully in the movie. In fact, the movie is quite slow-paced and the mood and tone is rather depressing. It’s certainly an intense drama film.

The film was directed and screenplayed by Kongdej Jaturanrasamee, one of my favorite Thai film director. He is such an excellent screenwriter.

My rating is 8/10.
