Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Syndromes and a Century, 2006

Described as a hospital comedy with a metaphysical bent, Syndromes and a Century is inspired by the filmmaker’s memories of his doctor parents, and of growing up in a hospital environment. This spellbinding Buddhist meditation on the mysteries of love and attraction is a film in two halves with scenes playfully repeated, plus a surreal subplot involving a singing dentist and DJ doctor.
