Final Score a.k.a. 365 Wan Tam Tid Cheewit Dek Ent

This is one of the first Thai movies of the year 2007 opening in February after the release of the epic movie – The Legend of King Naresuan. "Final Score" has its strong point as a documentary movie that has been commercially released – the very first of its kind in Thai cinema after "Crying Tiger" a.k.a. "Sua Rong Hai" in 2005. The movie follows the lives of four Grade12 high school boys from the prestigious Suankularb Wittayalai School in Bangkok preparing themselves for the national entrance examination under the O-Net/A-Net (Ordinary National Educational Test/Advanced National Educational Test) scheme. Life is not as easy as it seems, especially for these teenagers who have to fight for the limited 40,000 places for the state university with some other 200,000 candidates while still have to deal with all personal problems including family and love issue. It’s certainly too darn hard to survive as a teenager.

After spending almost a year with the boys and filming over 300 hours of footage, it is a wonderful and marvellous job of the director Soraya Nakasuwan and her crew members including the cameramen and the editors to put everything together into 100-minute real-life documentary movie. I felt familiar with the boys as soon as the movie establishes all the main characters. Unknowingly, I could relate myself to the boys and get emotional with them and their families throughout the rest of the film. These wouldn’t be possible without the masterful skill of editing. However, even though the film advertises itself as "the movie without script," it’s undeniable that the cameras that follow the boys virtually everywhere from home to school DID affect their life in one way or another. That being mentioned, I still love this documentary movie.

In the end, the result of the examination doesn’t really matter. The "Final Score" of the examination is not the end of the story. As a matter of fact, it’s just the beginning of another step of life where everyone have to cross.

The children and students who are going to take the Exam should watch the film for will-power and inspiration.
Parents should watch the film for better understanding with their children.
Any other adults should watch the film for the sake of their sweet and bitter teenage memories which would definitely rekindle their spirits.

4 Stars out of 5 – recommend to everyone.
