Storyline

Explores the relationship between Ake, a young man who is paralyzed from the waist down after an accident, and Pun, the male nurse who takes care of him, and of course Ake's father. Ake is at first cold towards his nurse Pun, but as Pun continues to earnestly take care of him he starts to open up his heart through candid conversations. The physical contact with Pun makes him rethink physical desires that he wants to forget. The grudge he held against his father slowly abates. All of this slowly becomes the motivating factor to confirm that he is alive, albeit with physical problems. Written by Pusan International Film Festival

A story of a paralyzed young man and his male nurse.
23 September 2011 | by twcoursenSee all my reviews

Ake is a young man confined to his bed after an accident has left him paralyzed from the waist down. Ake is cared for by Pun, a male nurse who is hired by Thanin, the stoic patriarch of the family. The main house in the family compound is a grand old edifice that has seen better days. The general house duties are attended to by a handful of servants who share a smaller separate house built into the same compound. Utilizing the non-linear structure, the film focuses on the mundane, almost insignificant details of everyday life. But little by little, we begin to understand what secrets lie beneath the peaceful façade of the house… (written by Alicia Kish for the East Meets West Film Forum and Festival)
