Movie Info

Thai filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul directs this curious experimental hybrid between fiction and documentary. Structured roughly as a chain story, the film is a loose assembly of interviewees chosen at random throughout the director's native land, who first recount their own lives and then continue a storyline fed to them by the filmmaker.

A tale constructed by many where the camera slowly builds up a story of many voice and methods. [Full review in Spanish]

This masterpiece from new Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul blends fiction and nonfiction into a form of cinema previously forged by Hou Hsiao-hsien and Abbas Kiarostami.

Mysterious Object at Noon is fascinating not for its conclusiveness (which it inevitably lacks) but its construction. It is a film made with little domestic influence, austere in its appearance and unique in its form.
