The Overture

The Overture

This acclaimed Thai film is based on the life of Luang Paradit Pairoh, Thailand's most revered traditional musician. The elegant and sensitive narrative shifts back and forth in time, presenting our musical genius' life story and--by extension--the history of Thailand. The tale stretches from the Golden Era of King Rama V through to the ' 30s when classical music was banned by the country's "modern" government. In Thai with English subtitles.
