Tropical Malady

2 Dec 20105 Dec 2010

This fantastical two-part folk tale seems at first to be a straightforward love story: young soldier Keng and villager Tong fall for one another in the jungle paradise of north-eastern Thailand, their feelings intensified by the lush natural world that surrounds them. When Tong is suddenly spirited away, Keng sets out to search for his boyfriend through a surreal nocturnal landscape occupied by a mythical, shape-shifting beast, a quest that gives him a glimpse into a world transformed by love, longing and memory.
