Last Life in the Universe

Strange and elusive, this 2003 Thai feature by Pen-ek Ratanaruang traces the deepening relationship between a reserved, suicidal Japanese man (Tadanobu Asano) on the run from yakuza hit men and an angry young Thai woman (Sinitta Boonyasak) grieving the death of her sister. Most of the action takes place in the woman's trashed and eerily quiet provincial home, where the young man takes up residence, and true to the movie's title, the pair seem stranded together in a world of their own making. The elegant cinematography is by Chris Doyle (Hero, Rabbit-Proof Fence, In the Mood for Love). In English and subtitled Thai and Japanese. R, 112 min.
