Joking Jazz 4G (2016)
Like Jazz 4G (2016)
It’s holiday time in Thailand, with today’s Chakri Memorial Day kicking off anticipatory celebrations of next week’s Songkran Thai New Year, which is a three-day public holiday from next Wednesday to Friday.In the cinemas, the big Thai tentpole is the Songkran-flavored Luang Phee Jazz 4G (หลวงพี่แจ๊ส 4G, a.k.a. Joking Jazz 4G). It’s about a bespectacled, gauge-eared, tattooed hipster with a checkered past who is hiding out as a monk at an isolated mountaintop temple. He’s played by hipster comedian Phadung “Jazz Chuanchuen” Songsang. He and his temple-boy friends have an adventure as they are sent to Bangkok on a mission during Songkran.
