Manta Ray

Kraben Rahu

Thailand, France, 2018
Drama

Synopsis

Near a coastal village of Thailand, a local fisherman rescues a stranger, who does not speak a word, offers him his friendship and names him Thongchai. When the fisherman suddenly disappears at sea, Thongchai slowly begins to take over his friend’s life—his house, his job and his marriage.

Manta Ray Directed by Phuttiphong Aroonpheng
A film that stays with you for a long time for its quiet but humanist and cinematic appeal.

Manta Ray unlocks the metaphysical resonances of an issue often rendered one-dimensional.

The critique of anti-immigrant brutality is intensified by the lustrous cinematography (Aroonpheng was a top DP). You can feel the texture of the planks in the cabin and the sharp edges of the gems that fingers root out of the forest floor. This is probably the most tactile movie I saw at VIFF.
