Suffering from acute kidney failure, Uncle Boonmee has chosen to spend his final days surrounded by his loved ones in the countryside. Surprisingly, the ghost of his deceased wife appears to care for him, and his long lost son returns home in a non-human form. 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...

Be adventurous and join the enthusiastic cinephiles who have surrendered to this prize-winning film's beguiling Buddhist rhythms, mythical underpinnings and mesmeric images that include animism, apparitions, out-of-body experiences, and a beautiful princess having sex with a catfish. Structured in dream-like vignettes that explore themes of spiritualism and reincarnation, Uncle Boonmee may be resistant to concrete interpretation, but it is not without oddball humor. Winner, Golden Palm, Cannes Film Festival.
