Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives Synopsis

The latest film from the director of Syndromes and a Century, Tropical Malady and Blissfully Yours has propelled Apichatpong Weerasethakul into the spotlight.


Uncle Boonmee has chosen to spend his final days surrounded by his loved ones in the remote forest, an important place from his childhood and, he believes, the possible location of his former existences. Surprisingly, the ghost of his deceased wife appears to care for him, and the spirit of his long lost son returns. Contemplating the reasons for his illness, Boonmee treks through the jungle with his family to a mysterious hilltop cave -- the birthplace of his first life...


Eerie, poetic and masterful, Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives creates an enchanted world where fauna and flora converge to convey a magical, sublime atmosphere.


Winner of the 2010 Palme d'Or Cannes Film Festival.

Uncle Boonmee is a languid and meditative film much like sitting or laying under a shady tree watching the hot afternoon pass by. Apichatpong W.'s inclusion of what seems like disconnected scenes and picture installations breaks the boundaries of storytelling but in analysis these are connected by the music and narration.

The peculiarly titled Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives continues Apichatpong Weerasethakul's trademark style of creating slow, mediative and rewarding works for all those willing to endure them. Though maybe endure isn't the correct term as Uncle Boonmee is both Weerasethakul's most accessible and most profound film to date. Unburdened by dramatic revelations and contrived character arcs, its a quiet, peaceful work punctuated by subtle moments of uneasy. A hauntingly beautiful and wholly original film that I'd recommend highly.
