“3 tasty shorts…the stories reflect the complexity and beauty of love, seen from various Asian perspectives. Restrained, controlled and sensitive.”
International Film Festival Rotterdam

“One of the 10 tantalizing films not to be missed”
World Film Festival of Bangkok

“A diet of great cinema”
The Nation Bangkok, Thailand national broadsheet

“”Anocha Suwichakornpong’s beautiful films always seem like they’re taking off for somewhere. This proves exemplarily the case in Lunch, a half-hour-long film conceived as the middle entry in a graceful omnibus feature (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner). As frequently occurs in this amazing, still-evolving director’s work, what begins as social satire soon gives way to lyricism, with the world opening up as a gift for young people and offering them the hope that it will never close.”
