Mundane History
(Jao nok krajok)

by Anocha SUWICHAKORNPONG

mundane_history

Right next to the 2010 Palme d’Or awarded to Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Mundane History stumbles astonishingly on its title (mundane means trivial, unimportant) becoming the other Thai film to be seen and one of that year’s great revelations. Full of blunt self-restraint and a real bold stroke, the film captures the (psychological, social, sexual) inertia that embraces her characters.Let us not mince words Mundane History
can be described as a metaphysical home-movie : around an everyday situation, from the first to the last shot long, neutral scenes separated by hard cuts highlight the film’s drive to battle against the mysterious empire of the present. JB
