Syndromes & a Century, the acclaimed film from Thailand, is a story of two doctors, one female, one male, told in two parts that echo one another. The first half takes place at a quiet rural hospital, while the second unfolds at a much larger and more modern urban medical complex. The beauty of the film is an aspect partly of it's patient attention to faces, trees, landscapes and architectures, and partly of the subtle precision of the camera movements. Strand. 2008.
