Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

Sunday 13th March 5:00 PM


Winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes 2010, this unique and beguiling movie introduces Uncle Boonmee, who, suffering from acute kidney failure, has chosen to spend his final days surrounded by his loved ones in the countryside. To his astonishment, the ghost of his deceased wife appears, along with his long-lost son in non-human form. This unlikely clan then treks through the jungle to a mysterious cave, the birthplace of his first life, and the film takes a series of ravishing, dreamlike detours, achieving a mesmerising reunion of the living with the dead, the natural with the supernatural.


“This is a visionary film in the director's character-istic style: mysterious, dreamlike, gentle, quiet, magical... one of those rare films that contribute to the sum of human happiness.”

Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
