I Carried You Home
- 102 minutes
Another kind of road movie. Two estranged sisters, Pann (Apinya Sakuljaroensuk) and Pinn (Akhamsiri Suwanasuk) reunite following the sudden death of their larger-than-life mother, who collapsed mid-song while singing karaoke. Despite never having got on well, the siblings travel with the body back to the dead woman’s birthplace in Padang Besar (the film’s Thai title), driven by a friendly if unreliable chauffeur. After initial frostiness, the women try to forge a rapprochement.
Winner of the Thailand National Film Association Awards for Best Actress (Apinya Sakuljaroensuk) and Best Cinematography
