A hard-working freelancer graphic designer see his life getting worse every day. He secretly falls in love with the doctor trying to help him cure his strange rash allergies.

Heart Attack is the 4th feature film by Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit (36, Mary is Happy, Mary is Happy) one of the most interesting independent Thai director around. More accessible than his previous and more experimental films, this singular romantic comedy  is a pure delight from start to finish. Despite its subject matter, this isn’t another illness film. It  says a lot about work pressure in today’s society while maintaining the right  balance between comedy and social drama.

Solitude and emptiness are also one of many themes that the director addresses with gentle yet clever ways and the movie fits perfectly in the mood of our time. This is a feel good movie with  depth  and a sure sleeper hit  either for the art house or mainstream audience.

Fantasia screening: July 16, 12:20 PM (J.A. De Seve Theatre)
