This gentle, melancholic Thai drama gives a modern spin on an age-old story: girl meets boy, girl takes photos of boy, girl's hard drive crashes, girl loses photos.
uses just 36 fixed shots - the same number as is found in a conventional photographic film roll - to tell the elliptical story of a snap-happy location scout's attempts to recover digital files and love (both lost).
Succumb to its peaceable rhythms, and it adds up to a distinctive if slight experience - an object lesson in what can be achieved without recourse to frenetic cutting or camera-twirling.
Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit. Store that name in your mind's hard drive.
A leisurely paced but interesting hook on technology, memory and love.
In an economic 68 minutes and relatively few sequences, it has more to say about time's passage than many films over double its length.
This photographic formula may sound as restrictive as it is perscriptive but Thamrongrattanarit has a light approach to his ideas of memory and recollection, weaving moments of comedy and poignancy into his sweet if slight drama.
I admire the way Thamrongrattanarit wants to tell his story in 36 simple static shots, but the result is not so effective as he takes for granted our engagement and his scenes feel more like impressions that, when put together, don't lead to something as telling as it could be.
