Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

Loong Boonmee raleuk chat

FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY

The recipient of the prized Palme d’Or at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, this hypnotic drama tells the haunting story of a Thai man, suffering from kidney failure, who retreats to the countryside to die in the company of his loved ones. As Uncle Boonmee nears the end of his life, the spirit of his late wife returns to guide him into the unknown, and his estranged son reappears in the form of a jungle spirit.

“[Apichatpong Weerasethakul] is a director with a great sense of the magical and the mystical residing in the everyday.” —Los Angeles Times
