Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes 2010, this is the wonderfully whimsical story of Uncle Boonmee as he recalls his past lives from his deathbed. Suffering from acute kidney failure, the ghosts of Uncle Boonmee’s life begin to visit him and help usher him into the next life. Contemplating the reasons for his illness, Boonmee travels back through his past lives with a series of stories infused with sadness and humour in equal measure. A stunningly beautiful and often comedic meditation on life.
