Hi there movie fans.
As many of you will know the very prestigious Cannes Film Festival awards have drawn to a close and the final list of winner has been announced. Every festival the illustrious Palme d’Or, AKA the Golden Palm, goes to the best film of the festival. This year a movie with a rather bizarre name scooped the top honours. Let’s check out Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s rather peculiar tale called Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives.
Yes indeed this movie title is quite a strange one, however the reviews of this movie are anything but strange…in fact they are downright amazing. Apichatpong Weerasethakul is the Thai director of this rather uniquely odd movie which is about a man who is dying from kidney failure, but who is visited by the ghost of his dead wife who comes back to look after him in his final days. His disappeared son also comes back to him…however, in the form of a furry creature.
