Syndromes and a Century

2006 NR

An abstract drama told in two parts, this Thai film uses poignant and humorous memories from director Apichatpong Weerasethakul's childhood to simply evoke emotions as well as tell the story of his parents' budding relationship. Though the settings of each part are similar, one centers on a woman physician at a small clinic, and the other on a male doctor at a metropolitan hospital, and both include semblances of his parents' courtship.
