"Cleverness" and "wisedom" are different things.
11 June 2019 | by Aoi_kdrSee all my reviews

This Thai movie was based on an actual incident of group exam cheating in China. The change in speed of development was really cool! I liked these feelings of tension in the beggining of exam, the sounds of busy pencils and the thrilling performance in cheating scenes!

In the first half, I enjoyed watching the trick of cheating and the exciting tempo! I didn't realize when I learned forward. I watched over their detailed plans like the steals treasure and upped to the performance missions. In the meantime, I prayed for them not to get busted for it as if I was a member of them. It's easy to imagine that students who became models might be in states of trance. Since I got a high and felt realistic even though I was just one of the audience.

Particularly I was impressed that it was not only an entertainment but had questions in ending. Even if the story was completed, the issue remains still. Money gives you everything : the academic qualifications, time, even power and the status. So I wonder I could buy the academic ability. On the contrary, if I had the academic ability, is it impossible to get huge money or the status?

"The cleverness" and t"he wisedom" are different things. The first one is the ability to find the way to get over the difficulty. If it contains a good heart, you call it "the wisedom." That is to say the devil may be clever, but only angels are wise. The true wisedom can't have the objective value without being angels.

In an entrance exam of Cambridge university, one of the questions asked "Do you feel you're clever?"

How is Rin's answer with it? How about Bank's? And yours?
