April 28, 2017
Director Banjong Pisanthanakun is best known for horror, with his Shutter and Pee Mak both being landmarks of the genre in Thailand. Between the horror movies, in 2010 he wrote and directed Hello Stranger, an enjoyable romantic comedy about two strangers who become travelmates by chance in Seoul. Six years later, he reunites with leading man Ter Chantavit Dhanasevi for another picturesque dose of romance abroad in the Hokkaido-set One Day.
Ter Chantavit plays awkward IT geek Denchai who quite literally blends into the wall. Outfitted with glasses, permed hair and ill-fitting casualwear, Denchai is deemed cinematically unattractive, and his social skills are wanting. He has a huge crush on marketing team co-worker Nui (Mew Nittha Jirayungyurn), who actually remembers his name. The crush is pretty obsessive as he memorizes her personal details and helps her through secret gestures that are either attentively sweet or extremely creepy. In real life, it'd definitely be the latter, but since this is a movie, we know he's supposed to be just harmlessly quirky.
Nui, however, is in an open-secret relationship with her debonair married boss Top (Theerapat Sajakul). The whole company goes on a ski trip to Hokkaido, but Nui's hopes for a romantic outing with Top are dashed when his wife suddenly joins the party and announces her pregnancy. Staying behind for an extra day, the distressed Nui goes missing in the slopes and is eventually found unconscious. She wakes up with no memories of the last four years, a temporary episode of short-term amnesia. According to the doctor, she will recover her memories the next day, but forget everything that happened this day. Thinking back to a wish he made, Denchai impulsively tells the shocked Nui that they're a couple.
Their one day mostly follows the familiar romcom and celluloid tourism beats. Denchai fawns over Nui and brings her to the photogenic locales on the itinerary she had originally planned with Top. Niu doubts the geeky Denchai could be her boyfriend, but is gradually won over by his genuine heart. Throughout this magical day of blooming love, a nagging feeling of uneasiness persists, both for the protagonists and the audience. However sincere their feelings may be, it doesn't change the uncomfortable fact that one is a willing mistress and the other a stalkerish liar. The whole situation is too toxic to sweep under the rug and surprisingly, One Day doesn't.
Just when it seems like everything will be excused with genre cuteness and serendipitous discovery of true love, One Day comes back around to confront the seriousness of the protagonists' regrettable actions and decisions. Nui's moments of revelation are especially poignant, as she of four years ago struggles to understand and save her current self. Though Denchai's self-reckoning is more centered on the boyfriend deception and not all his other alarming behavior, his final choice indicates a growth in the character and an appropriately realistic and bittersweet conclusion for the film's unrealistic scenario.
One Day is the first film from the newly established GDH 559, the film production company that replaced GTH, which had been Thailand's most reliable and successful purveyor of romantic and horror blockbusters before its dissolving. With One Day, GDH 559 clearly picks up GTH's mantle of beautifully shot commercial romances that please the eyes and appeal to the heart.
