Review of the movie “Soul of Temperance” (Homestay)

When you first see the trailer of this movie, you will immediately think of a movie that uses a lot of sophisticated CGI scenes. It’s very rare that Thai films actually use CG and in some of the scenes it’s been pretty good at making the most of this technology.

Review of the Sovereign Soul

Director Parkpoom Wongpoom, who has experience making horror movies, is very good at pulling out mysteries and giving clues smoothly. The investigation process carried out by the main character creates the feeling of enjoying an investigative movie. The film’s mystery, based on Eto Mori’s Japanese novel titled Colorful, is maintained until the end with some surprising revelations.

The quality of acting in this movie is very good along with James’ charming acting as the spearhead of the film. Soul Sojourn has become an opportunity for him to show his acting talent, which helps him become one of Thailand’s highly regarded and talented young actors in the future. Meanwhile, Cherprang Areekul in this first movie did not disappoint, even in some parts, making viewers feel touched with his acting.

The price of temporary residence soul

The acting and the fairly well-reviewed story are also supported by a slick production system. Cinematography many times capture beautiful and beautiful moments that are edited well and smoothly by the editor. The music system can provide compositions that support the film’s mystery elements, and can adjust as the series transitions to teen dramas and family dramas. However, it feels like the sound system has a few flaws that create an unbalanced feeling because it is sometimes too jarring in some scenes, especially when The Guardian character appears.


Homestay provides a moving story of young people in general, who want immediate things in every problem they face and, if there is no way out, choose the worst method as a way out. deliverance: suicide. Not only that, the film also brings a love story of mutual respect of a spouse who has made a mistake and has to accept that mistake as a process of personal growth, in addition to a meaningful story. about friendship, where friends must be willing to love others more than themselves.
