Seasons Change

People will probably compare this movie to Crazy Little Thing Called Love because it's like the first Thai movie to ever invade Philippines. It's not as colorful and eventful as CLTCL had been but it's a perfectly unique story in it's own way.

Seasons Change is a 2006 Thai romantic comedy film. But I would like to add that it is a musical also. The story revolves around a guy named Pom who followed his crush, Dao who will study in a College of Music, unbeknownst to his father who apparently knows that he's studying on a med school. In that school, he met Aom who instantly became his bestfriend. Aom's father is a good friend of Pom's father who helped him keep the secrecy of his study.

Pom is a talented drummer and instantly formed a band with his new found friends, Ched and Chat. They named their band, ASS HOLY. haha! It was actually supposed to be ass hole but Chat read it wrong. But of course, Pom quit after joining the orchestra since his real goal was to be with Dao.
Dao (Yuwanat Arayanimisakul) is the first love of Pom. She's a talented violinist and has big dreams when it comes to her career.
Aom (Chutima Teepanat) is Pom's bestfriend when he started his college year. She's good in theory, or what we can say here as written activities but when in it comes to practical, she mostly fails. She's the one who composed "Seasons Change" for their musical performance at the end of the film.
Pom (Witawat Singlampong) is the main protagonist of the film. He's very talented when it comes to drumming but lacks abilities when it comes to theory. He's like the vice versa of Aom. That's why they are really meant for each other. haha! Anyways, he joined the orchestra and played the Timpani prior to being together with Dao.
Seasons Change as they call it. As the story progresses, he's caught between his feelings for his first love and his bestfriend. If you're watching the movie, we can see that little by little he's developing feelings for Aom although I think he's denying it because he thinks he's still in love with Dao. Now, here are the kilig parts :)

The two of them are listening to classical music.
I can't quite remember this but maybe they fell asleep while waiting for their turn in the orchestra.

Pom lent an umbrella supposed to be for Dao to Aom :)
Here's the obvious part because Aom really have her own umbrella but she told Pom that she didn't bring any because she wanted to share with him. hihi

They went together to have a part-time job. (Photo from Tumblr)
Now, the climatic part of the movie. Aom is finally realizing Pom's real intention of studying in the music school.

Aom lent her pen to Pom.
Which he lent to Dao.
And which Aom found out. So sad!
But that's not the real reason Aom and Pom fought, it's because his dad knew the truth about Pom's studies and he thought Aom was the one who told his dad. So sad!!!

Ok, so I wouldn't tell you more of what happened because I'm afraid I'll spoil it for you. All I can say is, you should watch it. START HERE before it's even deleted by YouTube. The subtitles kind of hard to read. I'll update you if I found other uploads of the movie. The best thing about this film is-- and on most Thai films -- it doesn't center on a love story between the typical rich-poor or hate-then-love thingy. It portrays the love story between two common people with the same status in life. The common school scenario and doesn't stay too much on a typical love triangle. What even made the film worth watching are the main characters. They really have talents in music which makes it more realistic and amazing.

Thanks to this movie I finally realized something that I've been asking for a long time in my heart. Maybe choosing between choices is different when it comes to career and love. In career, we choose the things we like instead of what others want for us. But in love, sometimes we have to choose what life accidentally brought to us because like seasons, our hearts really change course.

Between your love whom you think your destiny or your friend whom you've developed feelings for, who will you choose? Choose wisely because seasons change and these changes create great impacts that are irreversible.

But wait! When they released the DVD copy of the movie, they included a performance of Ass Holy, including Aom and Dao. Take a look at this:
