The story is meaningful

A Thai film produced by the "Bad Genius" team, remake from the 2010 Japanese anime film "Colourful". When a spirit woke up, It found himself in the body of a high school boy Min. He was a medical miracle in the eyes of outsiders. However, this "hosting soul" knew that this was test from the god of death, require him to find the truth of Min's death within 100 days, otherwise he will never be re-born! "The hosting soul" can only use the best way to invest in Min's world, feel Min's affection, friendship and love, and gradually find that Min's death has another inside story. . . The film was starred by Teaddon James Supapunpinyo of Bad Genius and the captain of the Thai youth group BNK48, Cherprang Areekul, who performed well. The theme of the film is special, but it is slightly biased towards the love between the male and female protagonists, but the lack of guessing and lack of romance, leading to the lack of tension and suspense in finding the truth. The rhythm of the first half of the movie was slower, and the two-hour story was a bit too long. Fortunately, the small turning point at the end of the film is extraordinary, and people are moved to have surprises! * Don't get me wrong, this is not a thriller movie, there is a soul instead of a ghost, no scare!
