2009. Thailand. Written and directed by Anocha Suwichakornpong. A deceptively simple story of a male nurse looking after a young man with partial paralysis, Mundane History takes on such weighty themes as life, birth, and the nature of the universe. Hallucinogenic, meditative, and mysterious—but never ponderous—the film drifts through the mundane, almost insignificant moments of everyday life, boldly suggesting that they all add up to something truly profound. In Thai; English subtitles. 82 min.
