It won the Palme d'Or at Cannes last year, and much critical acclaim as a beautiful and uplifting cinema experience so here it comes to big screen at the Cube for your (re-)pleasure.
As a film-maker, Apichatpong Weerasethakul (director of Tropical Malady) challenges and demolishes the conventional boundaries and approaches towards life and death, man and beast and pain and happiness. Here in Uncle Boonmee, he offers a gentle Zen Buddhist spirituality and magical storytelling to trace the meandering journey of one man’s spirit through various times and bodies.
