“Like dreaming with your eyes wide open” – The Hollywood Reporter
When a mysterious epidemic of incurable sleeping sickness breaks out at a hospital for stricken soldiers, kind-hearted but lonely Jenjira volunteers to do what she can. Forming a bond with one of her charges, she calls in a medium to commune with his sleeping spirit – and discovers the eerie ailment may be bound up with the phantoms of the hospital’s past. The line between hallucination and reality blurs in this visionary Thai drama from 2010 Cannes Palme d’Or winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul (Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives). Both intimate and sweeping, this spellbinding story weaves the pain of the past with the problems of the present.
