Last Life In The Universe
Last Life In The Universe marks the emergence of Pen-ek Ratanaruang as a world class filmmaker and brings him together with Japanese superstar Asano Tadanobu (Zatoichi, Bright Future) and legendary cinematographer Christopher Doyle (2046, In The Mood For Love, Rabbit Proof Fence). Together they spin the tale of Kenji, a mysterious librarian who has hidden himself away from society and seems bent on suicide. That is, until he meets Noi, a beautiful young woman who begins to seduce him back to life. If only she wasn't leaving Thailand for Osaka at the end of the weekend. Last Life In The Universe is a poetic tale about the strange way fate has of bringing people together just as their worlds seem on the verge of falling apart.
