Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives
Seattle Premiere!
Special Two-Week Engagement!

Winner of the Palme d'Or (2010 Cannes Film Festival, jury headed by Tim Burton), Uncle Boonmee is a playful, surreal trip through the mind of a man at the end of his life as he contemplates reincarnation. A ghost story told with the calm and patience of a prosaic tale of country living, the film concerns the final days of Boonmee (Thanapat Saisaymar), an aging farmer suffering from a kidney disease. The film moves at the tranquil pace of a lazy afternoon, and this quiet grace allows the frequently outrageous and bizarre elements of the story to blend seamlessly into reality, appearing as natural as the background hum of insects or the gentle murmur of the wind. Boonmee is the latest and most memorable of Apichatpong's tender, poetic, supernatural and semi-autobiographical reveries.

"If you still believe in the cinema's capacity to inspire magic and wonder, you need to see this" Mike McCahill, METRO

"Mysterious, dreamlike, gentle, quiet, magicalit all has something sublime and visionary about it, with a spiritual quality I can't remember seeing in any film recently." Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
