This Song Father Used to Sing (Three Days in May) zeroes in on a small kitchen space in Bangkok. A brother and sister live through three days there in May, each time in a different calendar year. Their retiring nature contrasts with the captivating and often absurd conversations they engage in. While cooking together, they mourn and show respect for their deceased father. Past, present and future blend subtly and are connected to the political context of the Thai metropolis. Wichaya Artamat shows life as it is, without drawing a veil over its alienating character. His characters’ statements do not serve any logic and neither do they lead to a clear end. And yet it is precisely in that indeterminacy that lies the strength of This Song Father Used to Sing (Three Days in May): it shows an underlying dimension of a life that repeats itself and from which there is no escape.
