Anatomy of Time
Jakrawal NILTHAMRONG Thailand, France, Netherlands, Singapore 118 Min R21 (Sexual Scenes and Nudity) Southeast Asian Premiere
Unhurried and atmospheric, this character study of a woman across two fragments in her life is a rumination on the nature of existence.
In the political fog of Cold War-era Thailand, a rickshaw driver and an army captain vie for the affections of a clockmaker’s daughter. In the present, she is resigned to spending her days looking after the captain, now a vilified, comatose general.
