Taking the Thammasat University student massacre of 1976 as its starting point, this beguiling second feature by writer/director Anocha Suwichakornpong, intricately weaves together the lives of various characters. The lives of a documentary filmmaker and her subject, a former a student activist, a waitress who constantly drifts from one job to another, an actor and an actress are all loosely connected, hinging on a series of almost invisible threads.

Mesmerising... A dizzying, dazzling work.
