“One of a kind...a sensory experience that makes its own rules.” — Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
An enchanted pool, a shimmering golden fish, and a water-bound transformation spin a tale of haunting delight in this Cannes Palme d’Or-winning feature. Breathtakingly mystical, and steeped in a Buddhist worldview, the film is a loose narrative spun around the last days of a dying man. Uncle Boonmee retreats with two family members to a small jungle home, where he is soon visited by guests from the spirit world in some of the most delicately beautiful and fantastical sequences in all of contemporary cinema. In Thai with English subtitles. 35mm. (BS)
