Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

As elderly Uncle Boonmee (Thanapat Saisaymar) retreats to his deathbed for his last days of living, he enters a rhapsodic state of mind that brings forth the ghost of his late wife and visions of his long-lost son, who appears in a strangely unsettling form. The spirits gradually take hold of the elderly man's soul to better guide him to the next world. A haunting, humorous, and moving exploration of mortality from Thailand.
