Die Tomorrow combines fiction, interviews, short clips, audio recordings and statistics in the form of an essay film about death. Death often comes unexpectedly, and what happens the day before is usually quite ordinary: friends celebrate their graduation, siblings meet again, a couple separates…

Writer-director Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit delivers a meditation on death, based on the last days of a variety of characters, that proves less bleak than you would expect. It's no less moving though, and poignant at times, but serves as a timely reminder to enjoy what we have in the here and now.
I got really drawn into each of the stories presented. This film is more about life and the emotions that come from every tiny moment than it is about death. I expected a Thai cultural exploration, but all of these stories are universal.
This film touched me deeply. Death is such a taboo subject for many people and yet it's the one thing we can all be sure will happen to us. This tender and moving exploration of the subject is something really special, delivered with real feeling and a deep love for people and their experience of life. Huge appreciation for Nawapol for the excellent direction and original idea for a film. Watch it.
El testimonio representado. En principio, esa formalidad cómo se construye este filme resulta atractivo, pero luego esta misma estrategia se desgasta, se hace predecible. En parte hace bien de que no se extienda la película. Lo bueno es que el director, a propósito de estas muertes repentinas, comienza a dejar fuera de la narración a los protagonistas trágicos. Eso hace que tenga una contemplación humana y reflexiva.
Does the world need people who leave rubbish strewn around their hotel room? Nice to learn that young children who grew up with internet access have more insight into the certainty facing every living thing than their teachers. I'm surprised that someone described as a social media celebrity made an involving film on a profound subject. Matting of image to a 1:1 ratio results in bad framing & denies it 5 stars.
Really tasteful mixture of mediums to express the multitude of emotions around death. Brilliant moments showing how a death can be a number ticking away or a world-shattering experience. Fully capturing the absurdity and randomness of life, and the importance of seizing every moment.
Loved it. An exquisitely shot and very human film.
