The Road to Mandalay Rated 15

The Road to Mandalay

Dir. Midi Z. Myanmar, 2016. 1h 48m. Burmese/subs. Starring Kai Ko, Ke-Xi Wu.

Two illegal Burmese migrants fleeing civil war fall in love while struggling to make ends meet in the bustling cities of Thailand. A low key and uncompromising examination of how the will to survive can override the most basic human desires.

’Powerfully portrays two people being torn apart by all the promises and illusions of the immigrant experience.’ ★★★★ Michael Jaconelli, The Skinny
