Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2023: #158. Phuttiphong Aroonpheng’s Morrison


2022 came and went and Phuttiphong Aroonpheng‘s sophomore film Morrison was mysteriously been left off the bingo card. The Thai-French production starring Hugo Chulachak Chakrabongse, Chicha Amatayakul and Joe Cummings, this went into production sometime in 2020 with CG Cinéma producing. Aroonpheng had quite the first feature debut in Manta Ray – which premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2018 and where it won Best Film in the Orizzonti section.

Gist: Jimmy, a 40-year-old former pop-star turned engineer, is sent to the region of his childhood to supervise the renovation of an old hotel. Once settled, Jimmy finds out the once flamboyant hotel has become a ruin, a maze of narrow corridors and a relic of a bygone era, which still bears the scars of the American occupation. In the heart of this mysterious place, Jimmy will wander between dream and fantasy and retrace his family’s history.

Release Date/Prediction: We see this as a Berlinale competition film or Locarno title.
