The film evolves into something deeper, a story about the atavistic wildness within people.

Some fantasy films make the leap from reality to reverie relatively seamlessly, hopscotching between the two states without leaving the audience behind. Tropical Malady is not one of those.

This may be one of the most rapturously original, mysteriously beautiful love stories ever told -- Baboon-language skills optional.

It's not the kind of movie you simply leave behind in the theater. It will follow you home, leaving only a trail of soft, invisible paw prints.

There is no loss of art-movie face to be had, I assure you, in admitting difficulty with the filmmaker's intentional tangle of genres as he stakes his story between waking life and legend.

With this fractured love story, the Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul pushes at the limits of narrative with grace and a puckish willfulness.

Certainly for most audiences the viewing experience will prove not only tedious but bewildering.

Takes the viewer on a mysterious and sporadically fascinating trip into the darkness of the human heart and Thai legend, but only after an hour of a weakly structured story about two young men who are attracted to each other.
