Winner of the Tiger Award at the Rotterdam International Film Festival in 2010, Suwichakornpong's debut feature utilizes an intensely personal story as a metaphor for Thailand's social and political instability. A young man named Ake returns to his family home after an accident leaves him paralyzed from the waist down. A male nurse, Pun, is hired to care for the embittered Ake, whose hatred of his authoritarian father has now grown into a hatred of the world at large. Trust and friendship slowly build between the two men, and as Pun helps his patient adjust to a new way of physically relating to the world, Ake begins to discover a new peace within as well. Gradually revealing greater levels of ambition within its intimate scenario, Mundane History finally culminates in a mesmerizing metaphysical explosion.
