This is a heartwarming comedy featuring the bonds of friendship can truly overcome even the most difficult of situations.

Luk Kaew, an eight-year-old young girl finds herself and her best friend, the Down Syndrome afflicted Tong, are locked in the luggage compartment of a tour bus while playing hide and seek. As a result, they are carried from their peaceful village to the bustling city Bangkok. Alone, hungry and hundreds of miles from home the children find refuge under the roof of one Thailand’s many temple until one day a group of strangers turn up offering to send the children back to the safe arms of Samnuay. Unbeknown to the children and the awaiting Samnuay the kindly looking strangers were in fact child abductors…


While it is a common affair to get normal healthy actors to play Down Syndrome characters, director Poj Arnon strives for the real thing instead and comes up with this touching, moving tale about extraordinary friendship and parental love.

Our main protégé Tong is a Down Syndrome boy, well-loved by his simple-minded father and family despite his condition. His only friend is the gutsy Luk Kaew (Grace Techaratanaprasert) who will try every means to protect the vulnerable Tong.

Despite the TV-like production values, “Beautiful, Wonderful, Perfect” have a wonderful cast to thank for. Grace Techaratanaprasert (whose father is also the producer and has appeared in this year, “Chai-Lai Angels”) is an inborn child actress with her bambi eyes and agility. And the actor playing Tong’s father is another gifted cast member.

Director Poj Arnon (“Chai-Lai Angels”) knows appropriately when to milk the laughs, tears from the audience although I must admit it does get a bit sappy towards the end. Perhaps the biggest eye-opener is the Down Syndrome afflicted children, who surprisingly is quite natural and blended in well with the rest of the cast and the storyline.

In short, “Beautiful, Wonderful, Perfect” can be abbreviate as Beautiful Script, Wonderful Cast, Perfect entertainment for the whole family.
