Blissfully Yours

Blissfully Yours is a 2002 Thai romance film directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul. It won the prize at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival.


Min is an illegal Burmese immigrant living in Thailand who has contracted a mysterious painful rash covering his upper body. His girlfriend, Roong, and a middle-aged woman, Orn, take him to see a doctor. Min pretends that he cannot speak because he is not fluent in Thai and speaking would reveal him to be an illegal immigrant. The doctor treats him, but because he does not have proper ID documents, refuses to supply him with the medical papers necessary to get a work permit. Roong pays Orn to help Min. Orn's prescribed medication is also mentioned, and while the doctor insists it is prescribed for stress relief, Orn claims her neighbor told her it was a powerful anti-depressant. Orn mentions that the medicine curbs her sexual appetite and that she might like to have another child with her husband. The doctor advises her not to take the medicine on days she intends to be intimate with her husband.
