Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

Apichatpong Weerasethakul | Thailand | | M
Film

Apichatpong Weerasethakul's audacious film centres on the last few days of the titular character as he is joined by those he has loved and lost, and contemplates his karmically charged past lives.

No one else is making films this exciting and challenging

Steve Erickson

Moving fluidly between the living and the dead, reality and dream, this uncanny, serene and truly borderless work is also the final instalment in Weerasethakul's 'Primitive' art project exploring the Isan region in northeast Thailand. One of the key films of the 2010s.

Winner of the 2010 Cannes Palme d’Or
