Sang Sattawat

Syndromes and a Century

(Thailand/Austria/France, 2006, 103 minutes)

Tales of love and life at a Thai hospital. If that doesn’t sound like much of a synopsis, that is because there really isn’t much of a story in this oblique but charming, beautifully shot moodpiece that strings together assorted episodes in the life of two doctors, replayed with significant differences in two different hospitals (one provincial, one urban) in two different time frames.
