The characters in this film could not be more dissimilar and it is this fusion which is interesting. The direction is a bit flicky, you're never really sure what time frame you're in and whether something really happened or not. It did not really achieve the promise of Geek pie's review for me but has a peaceful exuberance worth watching.
An offbeat romance.

The plot of 'Last Life In The Universe' revolves around the relationship between two diverse people. Kenji is an obsessive compulsive suicidal Japanese librarian, who through a shared experience meets Noi, a extrovert drug taking Thai waster. In reality 'Last Life In The Universe' is a film with very little in terms of a plotline, and instead relies on the strength of the story's characters. It's beautifully directed, acted, and is one of the most memorable films you'll ever see.
