Are you afraid of death? According to statistics, two people on earth die each second. Die Tomorrow zeroes in on the last day of its protagonists, each of whom have no idea of their fate. The film picks up on six everyday situations and turns them into moving stories. With true lightness of touch, director Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit forges shots that play out over considerable time and then combines them with documentary-like interview footage, news reports, sound recordings, statistics and archive material, thus creating an elaborate essay. In view of what is about to happen, small snatches of conversation take on dramatic dimensions for the viewer. The film succeeds in putting across its weighty topic in a manner at once entertaining and serious, even though in the time it takes to watch the film, statistics says that 8,442 people will have died – as well as another 120 in the time it takes to read this text. Death seems distant, but it is never far away, those afraid of it fear life as well. Die Tomorrow inspires reflection: about death but much more about the important, beautiful moments of life – and their fleeting nature.
