Mysterious blend of the real and the supernatural from acclaimed Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul. Like his recent work 'Syndromes and a Century' (2006), this is a film divided into two clear halves. The first part tells of the unfolding romance between Keng (Banlop Lomnoi), a soldier, and Tong (Sakda Kaewbuadee), a bashful country boy. In the second half the two men are recast as characters in a retelling of an old Thai folk fable that involves impenetrable jungle and a shape-shifting ghost. The film was awarded the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2004.
