My Girl

Synopsis: Jeab hears that his childhood sweetheart Noi-Naa is to be married, so he makes the trip back home to his provincial village. As he does so, the memories come flooding back to his childhood in 1980s Thailand. He remembers always being late to school, so his father would have to give him a ride on the back of the motorcycle. After school, he would always play with Noi-Naa and her girlfriends while the neighborhood boys rode their bicycles and played football and Chinese fantasy characters.

Why be single? True Love is having

someone to kiss,

someone to take care of you...

...someone to have kids with

...that's true love.


Hey! It's 7 o'clock already!

How are you gonna get there

in time to help for?

If you get there before me,

ask for what I have to do to help.

The reception's at the hotel

in the evening.

The Chinese ceremony's in the morning.

Yeah, everything's set.

What? Do I have to do that too?

We all figured he was gay. Who'd

have thought he would be the first to marry?

- So this is the groom?

- Yeah.

When's it your turn to tie the knot?

Still looking.

But she'll have to be as pretty as you.

You can do better than me!

Just a moment, please.


I'm at the tailor's!

Well I gotta look good at your wedding.

Who knows?

I might meet my future wife there.

Where are you?

I'm on my way.

I'm getting on the expressway.

I'll be there shortly.

What do you mean you're not free

for the wedding?

You don't work weekends.

Win has come all the way up

from Surat Thani for it.

Whatever. It's up to you.

No, I won't. You tell him yourself!

Can I call you back?

My hand's not free, I'm pissing.

Oh. It's you, Mom.

I can't come home this weekend.

I gotta go to Nakhon Sawan.

Why? What's up?

Huh? Noi Nah?

Yes, I remember her.


I can't make it, Mom.

I'm going to another wedding.

Are you going?

You have to.

Well then give my best to Noi Nah.

I've never really forgotten what happened.

I've tucked it away somewhere

in my memory.

If I'm not reminded,

I don't think about it.

But all it takes is a song from that era...

...and the memories come flooding back.

Knock knock knock! Open the door!

See who's knocking at your door!

Open the door to your heart.

Jeab! Wake up! Wake up!

Time to get up.

Get up and get dressed. Let's go play.

All the others are waiting.

Her name was Noi Nah.

We'd been friends since birth.

Jeab! Sit next to Noi Nah.

We were born around the same time.

She was born in the Year of the Tiger.

The Year of the Rabbit.

We lived in an area known

as Chinese temple.

Most of the kids in the area were girls.

Not like around the market...

Noi Nah was the only girl my age.

But she was bigger than me.

Would you care to have dinner with me?

I had to do everything she ordered.

Otherwise I'd have nobody to play with.

Let me freshen up first.

I'll wait here.

No peeking!

Who'd want to peek at you?

She was good at everything. Like

elastics. Nobody could beat her.

She was known as the Queen

of the Elastics.

My father had a barber's shop.

He'd been a barber for 10 years.

At least half the men around

the market,

young and old,

had their hair cut by my father.

Noi Nah's father was a barber, too.

I'm hungry. Anything to eat?

You're always hungry after play.

Come on.

Noi Nah's father used to be an artist.

The other half of the market

have their hair cut by him.


My dad had his own cutting style.

He used a comb and shears.

Noi Nah's dad took

a more artistic approach.

He needed time to contemplate.

He used a comb and scissors.



Now you're done.


Even though they had different

cutting styles...

One Coke, please.


...I couldn't tell the difference.

One Pepsi, please.

The funny thing was,

the shops were only two doors apart.

They weren't friends.

They were always fighting over

who was the better barber.

Hey Charn, give me a haircut.

It's grown so quickly.

Didn't you get your hair cut over

there last time?

I don't like working

in the shadow of someone else.

My father would get upset if his
