Rak ti Khon Kaen * Apichatpong Weerasethakul (2015)

In this slow and minimalistic film we watch the happenings in a Thai hospital filled with soldiers with a strange sleeping disease. The main characters are a sister, a clairvoyant sister and a patient from another part of the hospital.

Nothing much happens in the film. The sleeping disease is not explained, the hospital does not seem to look for a cure. We get a glimpse of the spiritual lives of the main characters and the way these worldviews work through their ways of looking at the world.

“Cemetary Of Splendour” is an alright watch when you are looking for something very tranquil. It has many long and apparently meaningless shots, little dialogue and, like I said, not much of a story.
