Fast & Feel Love
Press Play to start
At the 16th edition of Five Flavors, as last year, there is a system of booking seats at cinema screenings for accreditation and pass holders. It is important to us that we take care not to overcrowd the rooms and avoid queues at the entrance.
Only a reservation guarantees you a seat at a screening!
The reservation system is very simple and is based on similar principles as buying tickets for individual screenings - just login to your account, visit the page of the selected film and click "book". Detailed information can be found below.
Please make reservations only for the screenings you wish to attend. Reservations can be cancelled, even at the last minute - please remember this and always cancel your reservation if you cancel your screening - this will allow other viewers to use the available space.
Reservations will be possible from Tuesday, 15 November from 12:00 p.m. for all the festival's films.
Reservation of seats
for pass and accreditation holders
Tuesday, November 15, 12:00 pm
If you decide to attend a screening at the last minute or for any other reason you do not book in advance, and there are seats available in the auditorium, your booking will be made "automatically" at the entrance to the auditorium after scanning your pass.
For most of the screenings there will be free seats before the show itself. However, please pay special attention to the screenings of Edward Yang's works and the screenings of those films that we only show in the cinema - we expect the highest attendance at these screenings.
This year, you will also be able to use an electronic pass by presenting it to ticket takers on your phone screen.
What connects speed stacking, superhero films, a couple fighting about cleaning, and the dilemmas of millenials? The answer comes from the Festival favorite, Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit and his latest film Fast & Feel Love, which proves that being an adult truly is a state of mind. The protagonist, the 30-year-old Kao, is a world champion in speed stacking – a sport consisting of stacking cups on top of each other. He has just been dumped by his girlfriend, Jay, who has long been both his assistant and his caretaker. Without her, Jay is finally forced to grow up. He may be able to set the world record in speed stacking, but he is struggling to get a grip on his life.
Only Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit could turn this story into a blockbuster filled with pop cultural references. In his first full-blooded, action-filled genre film, he masterfully navigates suspense, showing Kao’s helplessness in the face of the challenges of adulthood – cleaning, cooking, or managing the home budget. We all know that superheroes can barely get by without their inseparable assistants who usually remain in the shadow of the protagonists’ achievements. Fast & Feel Love is also an auteur, cinephilic attempt to show the everyday lives of lost millenials who refuse to grow up, but are desperately in need of love.
Born in 1984, he studied Chinese philology at the Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok. Film critic, scriptwriter, author of many commercials, and the co-founder of Third Class Citizen, a Thai group uniting film activists. He participated in the Berlinale Talent Campus and the 2013 Biennale College in Venice. He won the Five Flavours competition in 2013 with his film 36, and then again in 2018 with Die Tomorrow. He is famous for portraying the millennial generation and for his beloved ad aesthetic.
