A Perfect Day -- An excerpt of the Mother and the Guide's conversation from 'A Perfect Day' watch
Utilizing a detailed checklist, Beth Castle tries to live the perfect day. The question is, why? watch
Perfect Day -- PERFECT DAY is about a day in the life of Rick, an Irish forty-something who lives in Phuket, Thailand. He sets out to have what is for him the perfect day, a combination of hedonism and spirituality, traveling the island 'Easy Rider' style on a large chopper motorbike.
However all is not as it seems with Rick. He is visited regularly by the ghost of his comical father and haunted by memories of a girl called Clodagh. Through the course of the day Rick muses on his life, and considers how we went from the optimism of Live Aid to the horror of 9/11. Rick's secret past is revealed, a past which has led him to where he is now.
Perfect Day is about priorities in life and how one man copes with his fate, in a film beautifully shot on location in Thailand and Ireland.
'Only through the sugarless tea and black bread
can we charm back the luxury of a child's soul...'
