Although I love Thailand, the censorship here sometimes drives me nuts. Case in point, a trailer for a new Thai movie has just been banned and, if you’re western like me, you couldn’t for the life of you figure out why. But, apparently in Thailand, it’s not acceptable.
Why? Because in a couple of scenes, teenagers ‘almost’ kiss and in one scene they’re even wearing their school uniforms. These old men running Thailand’s Censorship Board really need to retire. They’re living in the 1800s and it’s very detrimental to Thailand and its creativity.
The movie teaser that was censored is for a movie called “Love Julinsee” or in Thai, “Rak Man Yai Mak”.
