Movie Info

Independent Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul's second feature is a leisurely paced chronicle of two young lovers, Min (Min Oo), an illegal immigrant from Burma, and Roong (Kanokporn Tongaram), a girl who works in a souvenir sweatshop, who take the day off for a picnic in the bucolic countryside. The first half of the film documents their efforts to procure medicine for Min's irritating skin condition and extricate themselves from Orn (Jenjira Jansuda), the older woman who Roong pays to look after Min. The remainder of the film takes on the slow rhythms of their idyllic day together.

Apichatpong Weerasethakul's delicate, ethereal dream of a film marks the emergence of one of the more original and promising new voices to hit the international cinema scene in recent years.

Poetic and rhythmically confident, Blissfully Yours is a subtle seduction.

Unlikely to make Weerasethakul a household name -- but it confirms his status as a giant of fourth-world cinema.

Jun 8, 2004

After a while, the extremely limited camera movement and languid pacing take an exacting toll, resulting in a viewing experience that is considerably less than idyllic.

Nothing much happens that usually goes for a film plot, though in real life this simplistic dreamy scenario is very believable.

A superb second feature from up-and-coming Thai filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul.

Audience Reviews for Blissfully Yours (Sud Sanaeha)

½

A languid film that wants to capture a moment in time and create an evocative atmosphere with an immersive sound design, but director Apichatpong Weerasethakul seems to think that idyllic and tedious are the same, and so the film ends up having the effect of a sleeping pill.
