"Last Life in the Universe" wins Best Film at Fantasia 2004.

I'd never heard of this Thai film before. It stars Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano (Ichii the Killer, Zaitochi). Here's a review:

"Cameo appearances by Riki Takeuchi and Takashi Miike and cinematography by Christopher Doyle". Sounds good to me.

----------------------------------------------

Strange that The Uninvited was recognized but that they ignored the vastly superior A Tale of Two Sisters and Memories of Murder.

And now I can't wait to see Shaun of the Dead!

Pretty straightforward but if you need anything translated let me know.

There is, but it's cut.


Last Life in the Universe is a pretty good drama. A Japanese librarian hits a Thai girl in an accident and gets to know her sister... Btw Takashi Miike has a short appearance as a yakuza in the movie.
