“Uncle Boonmee…” now showing at cinemas in the UK

Now it is time for British film-goers to be baffled, charmed, bemused, fascinated, confused, frustrated or even bored by this year’s Palme d’Or winning Thai film. “Uncle Boonmee…” is in UK cinemas from today. It will not surprise me at all if this quirky movie by Khun Apichatpong irks a lot of people who have not yet experienced his work. Anyway it does not matter as it is expected and “Uncle Boonmee…” – like Khun Apichatpong – is generous enough to let people feel whatever they want to feel about the film. It is open enough for those who want to give it ago and if you are open-minded and are able to stay with each moment of the film, you will find it pleasantly rewarding.
