    Lao cinema hits the jackpot

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 19/05/2017

    » In this Lao film, a nearly-blind woman is visited by ghosts that come to tell her winning lottery numbers.

On paper, it all sounds preposterous. Ghosts that give out lotto jackpots? How superstitious! How Southeast Asia! But don't be mistaken: you should go and watch Nong Hak (Dearest Sister), a well-made Lao production that spins the supernatural premise into class critique and psychological horror, ripe with atmospheric suspense. In fact, this is simply a better film in terms of script and technical standards than many Thai flicks released each year.
