"Nang-Nak (Ghost Wife)"
Directed by Nonzee Nimibutr
In its native Thailand, this haunting supernatural
romance did more business at the box office than Titanic and won Pan
Asia Film Festival honors for Best Picture and Best Director. A
heartbreaking story of love from beyond the grave, Nang-Nak follows a
wife wholly devoted to her drifter husband. When he finally returns home,
the husband only gradually realizes that his wife and baby have actually
died during childbirth and that he is living with their ghosts. Thai with
English subtitles. 101 minutes.
