JUN ICHIKAWA VS. TOSSAPOL BOONSINSUKH

I once compared Tossapol Boonsinsukh with Jun Ichikawa in Senses of Cinema

Reading Jun Ichikawa's interview makes me think about Tossapol. Here is a quote from Jun Ichikawa:
http://eigageijutsu.blogspot.com/2010/10/jun-ichikawa-interview.html
"That film is about how a group of friends go their separate ways. Friends can't always stay together -- a time for saying good-by must come. You might call it a youth movie [seishun eiga], but it also about a film about growing up, and I feel that growing up is a lonely thing to do. Growing up is a good thing, but the more people become adults, the lonelier they get. Growing up means saying good-by, it means losing something."

(Thanks to Merveillesxx for telling me about this interview)

I think the quote above can also be used to describe 30 (2010, Tossapol Boonsinsukh, A+++++++++++++++).
