Indie director Anocha Suwichakornpong's debut feature Mundane History, the Tiger Award winner at the recent International Film Festival Rotterdam, has been reviewed by the industry bible Variety. Here's the intro:
A recently paralyzed young man learns to release some of his anger thanks to the ministrations of a male nurse in the always intriguing, occasionally perplexing "Mundane History." Despite what it sounds like, there's no gay subtext here; rather, the pic is an unusually edited meditation on family, class, life cycles and politics. Debuting helmer Anocha Suwitchakornpong and Apichatpong Weerasethakul's regular editor, Lee Chatametikool, play with temporal shifts meant to favor rhythm over linearity, but while the experiment creates some nice qualities, it does become overcalculated.
It's a fair review by Jay Weissberg, who saw it in Rotterdam.
And I just realized the father in Mundane History is "that guy" Paramej Noiam (ปรเมศร์ น้อยอ่ำ, also stated as Parames Nongaum or Poramet Noi-um) as his name's been stated elsewhere. He's winning awards for playing the principal in Samchuk. He was the doctor in Body #19. What else has he been in?
