"Leaving his traditionally bifurcated structures behind, Apichatpong Weerasethakul plunges even further into the realm of trapical surrealism, tapping into parallel realities and past lives with a delicate restraint that is all his own." - Tiny Mix Tapes

"Uncle Boonmee is art that embraces, rather than reorders, life's chaos."
-
In These Times

Suffering from acute kidney failure, Uncle Boonmee has chosen to spend his final days surrounded by his loved ones in the countryside. Surprisingly, the ghost of his deceased wife appears to care for him, and his long lost son returns home in a non-human form. 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.
