"Final Score" is a documentary following a group of 17-year old Thai students at the age of 17 preparing for their upcoming "entrance examination", the most important exam to determine where they go to university. See how the students get through many obstacles - intensive and extra courses, Thailand's unstable economic and political situation, the changes in society, and the brand new admission system to screen qualified students. No one knows how the result would be. Success or failure? They're now in charge of their own fate.Written by
I saw this movie when it was released in 2007. It follows a group of students preparing for their college entrance exams. Now, in 2013, looking back I can still remember the uncertainty and fear in the students followed by the documentary. Although this movie is not entertaining storytelling, it is, in fact, a great documentary of the lives of young people showing the enormous pressure to perform in a society that values conformity and acceptance above all. I am still struck by the pressure to excel felt by these young people as compared to regular students. This is a must see film for those wishing to understand the differences in attitudes between top tier and regular Thai students.
