Don't think of it as film. Think of it as a series of paintings that talk to each other, raptly and quietly. Full Review

3 stars out of 5 -- Weerasethakul delights in being enigmatic....But there's something more accessible and seductive about this treatise on time, memory and the Buddhist notions of identity and reincarnation.

Product Description:

From Thailand, SYNDROMES AND A CENTURY is a drama set largely in two different hospitals. Taking place at different times, two stories become mirrors for one another as they are interwoven. Tao (Nu Nimsomboon) desires Dr. Tei, but is too timid to share his feelings. Meanwhile, at the same hospital, a dentist works on the mouth of a young monk, with whom he builds a unique bond. While the first story occurs in a small town, the second takes place in bustling Bangkok, and explores the lives of the same characters in addition to some fresh faces.
