Film Series: Tropical Malady

2004. Thailand. Dir: Apichatpong Weerasethakul. With Banlop Lomnoi. 118 min.


Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival, Malady tells a story in two disconnected halves that mirror the agonies and ecstasies of love. In the first, sexual tension builds to dreamy climax as a solider pursues a coy country boy. In the second, a man hunts a shape-shifting tiger shaman through a hazy jungle, tormented by shadows.
