Description

In Palme d’Or-winning (for ‘Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives’) Thai director Apachatpong ‘Joe’ Weerasethakul’s latest dreamy foray into the nature of memory and place, Tilda Swinton plays Jessica, a botanist from the U.K. visiting her hospitalized sister, Karen (Agnes Brekke) in Bogotá, Colombia, who becomes obsessed with tracing a sound that invades her sleep. Even though he is working in English for the first time, Apichatpong continues the ethereal union of the oneiric and the realistic that mark his Thai masterpieces. Absolutely unique.

‘In a calmly realist, non-mystic movie language, this director really can convince you that the living and the dead, the past and the present, the terrestrial and the other, do exist side by side. “Memoria” is a beautiful and mysterious movie… What originality and daring, the biggest ideas invoked with compelling zen humility. Weerasekathul is an artist who demands that you return your thoughts to the unsolved and unspoken mysteries of existence.’—Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
