Fan Chan star urges children to see Once Upon a Time

Young actor Charlie “Nat” Trairat of Fan Chan and Dorm is asking children and their families to see Bhandit Rittakol’s classic 1995 drama, Once Upon a Time … This Morning, which is screening at the 2nd International Children’s Film Festival at 4.30pm on Saturday, January 26, at Major Cineplex Pinklao.

It was his first film, and he played a toddler.

Once Upon a Time was my first film,” says Charlie, 15, who was around two years old at the time. “I played a baby in a pram.”

In the film, Santisuk Promsiri and Jintara Sukapat portray the baby’s parents. In 2006, a more grown up Charlie shared the screen with Jintara again, in Dorm.

“This is a good film,” says Charlie of Once Upon a Time. “I feel so glad when I watch this film with my family and share our impressions of it together.”

Charlie's statements were reported on the website of The Nation. Here's what the story has to say about the film:

Once Upon a Time is a drama about a group of children from a broken home. After their parents are divorced, the children are forced to live with the mother even though they have a much closer and better relationship with their father.

After an argument with their mother, they decide to run away from their mother's care to search for their father. An adventure begins as the children set out by train to follow their father up North, where they get accidentally tangled up with a drug dealer and a gang of homeless youngsters.

Once Upon a Time ... This Morning (Kalla khrung nueng... muea chao nee) was Thailand’s submission for Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film for 1995. It won Best Picture at the Thailand National Film Association Awards.

Organised by the Thai Film Foundation and the Knowledge Management and Development Office, the 2nd International Children’s Film Festival continues until Sunday at Major Cineplex Pinklao and TK Park in CentralWorld.
