Hot on the heels of the poster for Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s magical, mystical Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, Apple debuts the beguiling trailer.

Here’s the official blurb which most likely won’t help you much. If it’s anything like Syndromes and a Century (and reviews since Cannes seem to suggest it is), it’s not blurbable, you just have to see it.

Suffering from acute kidney failure, Uncle Boonmee has chosen to spend his final days surrounded by his loved ones in the countryside. Surprisingly, the ghost of his deceased wife appears to care for him, and his long lost son returns home in a non-human form. Contemplating the reasons for his illness, Boonmee treks through the jungle with his family to a mysterious hilltop cave – the birthplace of his first life…

Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives opens in NY on 3/2 and LA & SF on 3/4. Stream the trailer after the jump.
