SYNOPSIS

‘The surprise winner of the Palme d 'Or at the 2010 Cannes film festival, the latest masterpiece from Apichatpong Weerasethaku is also the final segment of his multi-platform film/installation project Primitive. In the final stages of acute kidney failure, a soft-spoken farmer peacefully prepares himself to die on his family farm — an idyll interrupted by the ghostly manifestation of his departed wife and the arrival of his long-lost son in the form of a laser-eyed, well-coiffed ape. As this unlikely clan treks through the verdant jungle to a remote cave and the film takes a series of ravishing, dreamlike detours, Uncle Boonmee daringly combines joyful quietude, melancholia, deadpan humour and political awareness in its mesmerizing reunion of the living with the dead, the natural with the supernatural, history with the present.’ Toronto International Film Festival
