ETERNITY

Thailand, 2010 (MIFF 2011, Accent on Asia)

Director: Sivaroj Kongsakul

ETERNITY

Winner of a Tiger award for Best Picture at the 2011 International Film Festival Rotterdam.

Sivaroj Kongsakul makes a startling feature film debut with Eternity, a patient, consuming, all-encompassing metaphysical love story.

Eternity tells the tale of a wandering spirit named Wit as he traces the happiest moments from his mortal life. A journey through Wit's courtship of his beloved wife, Koi, and his years spent with her subsequently, he travels along the span of a tender romance that seems to echo through the ages in its glorious, beautiful ordinariness.

A life told in unassuming moments and fragments of shared joy, Eternity is an elegiac love story, a meditation on loss and death, a lushly rendered character study and a remarkable entry from a bright new voice in world cinema.
