Syndromes and a Century Details


The real-life love story between filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul's parents inspired this romantic drama which follows three separate stories occurring over a span of forty years. First, a shy but charming young doctor has just started working at a hospital in Bangkok, and he soon becomes deeply infatuated with a female surgeon on the staff. However, he has a rival for her affections, as she has feelings for a man who grows and sells orchids. Later, a monk comes to the same hospital for an appointment with a female oral surgeon; over the course of the visit, the two discover they have a powerful chemistry, which may be love or could represent a deep level of spiritual communication. Finally, a new intern on the hospital's staff finds it difficult to deal with the prying minds of the administrative staff and he escapes into the outer reaches of the hospital, only to discover a forgotten wing of patients suffering from a variety of unusual maladies. Starring Nantarat Sawaddikul, Sophon Pukanok and Jaruchai Iamaram, Sang Sattawat (aka Syndromes and a Century) received its world premiere at the 2006 Venice Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
