Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives 2010 12

113 mins Director. Apichatpong Weerasethakul

The Cannes Palme d'or-winner by Thailand's Apichatpong Weerasethakul is a typically sensuous, lyrical portrait of an ailing elderly farmer who while preparing to die is visited by his long-estranged son and by his late wife's ghost... Human and animal, living and dead, reality and cinema come together in a poetic, imaginative realm that knows no borders. Eccentric, personal, magical filmmaking
