Musetto, NEW YORK POST "There is some lovely filmmaking here, and nice surprises." -- Wesley Morris, BOSTON GLOBE "The film has a precise, slow pace that allows us to get to know these quiet, quirky characters, and an imaginatively experimental approach to their thoughts and dreams." -- G. Allen Johnson, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE "Allusive, and enigmatic, this Thai film is a wistful mood piece whose contemplative tone is periodically punctured with eruptions of violence." -- Stephen Holden, NEW YORK TIMES "An absorbing series of intricately planned shots that play like installation art at a modern museum." -- Michael Booth, DENVER POST,BEST ACTOR - VENICE FILM FESTIVAL OFFICAL SELECTIONl TORONTO, LONDON, MELBOURNE, VANCOUVER, SUNDANCE, ROTTEDAM.,LAST LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE brings together three of the most exciting talents in current world cinema: director Pen-ek Ratanaruang, Japanese superstar Asano Tadanobu, and Hong Kong-based Australian cinematographer Christopher Doyle (HERO, DUMPLINGS). Under the guidance of this much-celebrated triumvirate, refugee elements of Japanese yakuza films, an unpredictable succession of lush and intoxicating images, and a host of eccentric narrative tics from the cutting edge of Thai cinema converge to tell the story of the mysterious Kenji, a lonely, obsessive-compulsive Japanese librarian's assistant and occasional suicide hobbyist quietly living - and hoping to die - in Bangkok.
