Last Life in the Universe is a slow pacing flick, the director created a unique atmosphere with its slow camera (which presents us some gorgeous landscapes with some awesome camera shots), slow (and amazingly beautiful) score, which completely fills the movie because the dialogues are almost nonexistent, and I loved it. All this unique charm environment is followed by solid and appropriate performances.
"I'm full" - "Then stop eating" - "Never mind" *Continue eating* This is so me lol. Faith in life restored. The best film I have seen in my life. Watched this with best friends under the rain with a cup of awesome tea along with other awesome people and then saw a firefly above my head. It can't never be wonderful life like that. A sad and beautiful film. The soundtrack is awesome. "What's the point in living?" - Noi
ratanaruang and doyle collaborate to ooze atmosphere, dread, melancholy and the occasional comedic gesture to form a film so full of beauty and life it's impossible to explain with text. asano is flawless as always, and sinitta boonyasak is an offbeat and essential lead that does not exist to serve asano's needs, but has her own simultaneous development arc. one of the best films of the 00's.
Very delicate, very simple and very beautiful. Absolutely wonderful love story. Christopher Doyle shows off his talent once again as one of the greatest cinematographers to ever live and it really compliments and mood and tone of this very beautiful film. It's extremely sad but I loved it.
I was in love with this film from the first shot. It was one of those were I just knew, I just knew I was in for some superb cinema from the moment it begin, and I most certainly was not disappointed. Every shot was pure gold (Christopher Doyle is a master of cinematography, no doubt), and I adored Kenji and Noi so dearly, even if the ending left me a little brokenhearted.
I seem to recall this had a weak synposis (alternatively a completely spoiling one) and now there is none visible what so ever. A new one on the way? Re-watched it today at our local cinematheque and it's utterly spellbinding. Photo by Doyle + the subliminal soundtrack is to die for. God I love it.
