Four friends in their mid-twenties go to Kanchanaburi to visit the World War II memorial site of the "Death Railway." Running parallel to this narrative is the story of another woman who finds herself alone in the middle of the forest after her friend mysteriously disappears.
The new work of Anocha Suwichakornpong is also in line with her previous films including Mundane History (2009) and By the Time It Gets Dark (2016) in exploring Thailand’s modern history from a political and psychological perspective. The “Rail of Death” in the Kanchanaburi area killed tens of thousands of people during World War II. The director casts a dark shadow on the film with the scene of running on the railroad overlaid with sounds of the construction site. The film depicts the story of four young people who visit the place and a woman from another forest whose relationship with them is unclear. Young people come and go to the riverside pension and theatrical stage. Another woman in the forest transforms herself. Their story revolves or proceeds in a spiral around the sound of fireworks by the river. Come Here is a puzzle-like film, and all pieces do not fit into one story. Extra or missing pieces of the puzzle develop into another story. (MOON Seok)
