A simple, almost spare family drama told through strong, purposeful images, this first feature from the Thai director Anocha Suwichakornpong parallels the emotional dynamic of a single home with the tumult of an entire country - and is the prelude to a hallucinogenic meditation about our place in the universe. Anocha's seemingly ordinary, astutely structured family drama is a movie with a cosmic aspiration: The story of a paralyzed son, his elusive father, and the male nurse hired to take care of the wheelchair-bound patient, slowly morphs and loops into a philosophical discussion of the human condition and the helplessness that every person - every civilisation - must face as a part of our evolutionary cycle. A film as impressive and mysterious as life itself. Director Anocha Suwichakornpong and editor Lee Chatametikool are associates of Cannes prize-winning Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul. This, her first feature, has been widely praised one of the most startling and original feature debuts of recent years.
