The latest film from the director of SYNDROMES AND A CENTURY, TROPICAL MALADY and BLISSFULLY YOURS has propelled Apichatpong Weerasethakul into the spotlight.
Uncle Boonmee (Thanapat Saisaymar) decides to spend his final days surrounded by his loved ones in the remote forest, which has always been an important place for him since his childhood. He strongly believes the forest is where he will find his former existences.
Strangely, the ghost of his deceased wife appears to care for him, and the spirit of his long lost son returns. Contemplating the reasons for his illness, Boonmee treks through the jungle with his family to a mysterious hilltop cave -- the birthplace of his first life...
Eerie, poetic and masterful, UNCLE BOONMEE creates an enchanted world where fauna and flora converge to convey a magical, sublime atmosphere.
