In Brief: ROAD TO MANDALAY (2017) New York Asian FIlm Festival 2017
Midi Z's gorgeous to look at downbeat drama, is like his other films a punch in the face and the heart.
The film follows two people who escape from Burma into Thailand hoping for a better life. However their in ability to get the necessary permits to work cause all sorts of tension and it ultimately fractures the relationship.
A solid art film it is deliberately paced and it sucks you in and drags you along. It also gives you much to think about concerning people trying to move to a better place for a better life.
