Nymph (Nang mai)

de Pen-ek Ratanaruang


Two men attack a woman in a forest. A few years later, the bodies of these two delinquents appear. No one knows where the girl is or who saved her. Simultaneously, May, with a good job and a long marriage, travels with her husband to the forest. He disappears and when he returns, he seems to have another personality. This thriller with fantastic overtones enters an absolutely suggestive terrain. The director, Pen-ek Ratanaruang, has created one of the season’s most fascinating opening sequences, where the camera, from incredible positions, flies over the forest that conceals the mystery.
