Synopsis

Tul, a hitman, is shot in the head during an assignment. He wakes up after a three-month coma to find that he sees everything upside down, literally. Then he meets a girl that turns his world even more upside down. Who was trying to kill him in the first place?

Our take

Pen-ek Ratanaruang is one of Thailand’s most stylish directors, with an oeuvre of gorgeous films to his name such as festival hits Last Life in the Universe and Nymph. His 2011 noir takes his ingenuity to new heights, a thriller that somersaults through the visual possibilities of genre cinema!
