One thing I love about Thai movies about teenagers and young Thai adults is, even though they might have risqué names like “Sex Phone” or the latest one, “Virgin Am I“, most of the time they are actually quite sweet and tame.
“Virgin Am I” is a new teenage “sex comedy” as they are often known in Thailand, which tells the story of a group of Thai teens who want to lose their virginity. It is actually a romantic comedy with some very funny scenes, and some extremely touching moments.
Of course, like most Thai movies on this type of subject, the morals message is nice too.
I saw this when it was released in Thailand a couple of weeks ago and loved it. And yes, because I am a girl, I cried in all the right places.
“Virgin Am I” stars Thongpoom Siripipat, Wongsamran Sutiwas and Nicole Theriault, and was directed by Anuchit Muanprom (Love Not Yet).
Check out the”Virgin Am I” trailer in the video below. It is a lovely little movie if you want a break from reality for a couple of hours, and I highly recommend it.
