Cemetery of Splendour

Drama, Fantasy, Mystery 2h 2m 2015

Aroview: Mesmerising film in the director’s indefinable style, set in and around a rural Thai hospital which may be haunted.

A group of soldiers excavating a patch of nearby land have fallen ill with a mysterious sleeping sickness, and a local volunteer who comes to their aid discovers that the troubled dreams these men are having could be caused by the spirits of ancient warriors populating the site. A hypnotic film-watching experience that is not easily forgotten.

“An essay in psychogeography and a meditation on death, the presence of the spirit world in nature and the unquiet ghosts of guilt and pain in the Thai nation” ~PETER BRADSHAW, THE GUARDIAN
